Nestle announces plans to expand frozen foods plant

SOLON, Ohio Nestle Prepared Foods Co. announced today plans to expand its frozen foods manufacturing plant in Jonesboro, Ark.

The proposed expansion will cost more than $60 million and bring about 200 news jobs to Jonesboro.

A 50,000-square-foot addition to the frozen food facility will allow enough space for the installation of a new production line and new bakery to produce Stouffer's and Lean Cuisine brand frozen pizzas.

Executives at Nestle said the current growth of the company is largely due to the successes of the Stouffer's and Lean Cuisine brands—sales leaders in the frozen foods industry.
