Kraft will add 45 jobs at the site

Kraft Foods has announced a US$35m investment in a Pennsylvanian production facility that will create 45 jobs.

The money will fund four new product lines as well as new equipment and infrastructure at the Lehigh County plant, local officials said this week. The site produces beverage products for single-serve home brewing systems and already employs 400 staff.

It also makes A1 Steak Sauce and Grey Poupon mustard.

A Kraft spokesperson said the company is “delighted” with the investment.

In Q1 results, released in May, Kraft's beverage unit posted a 28% jump in operating profits as overheads came down.
