Kraft Pizza Company, Northfield, Ill., opened the doors to a 108,000-square-foot pizza plant addition in Little Chute, Wis. Officials say the expanded plant now houses a new pizza crust bakery line and an assembly line that "will make a delicious difference" in the plant's ability to meet demand for the company's products now and in the future.
"This major expansion in Little Chute shows our commitment to Wisconsin and gives us the capacity we need to maintain our strong momentum," said Tim Cofer, Kraft Pizza president. "We're extending our industry leadership by making more of the highest-quality pizzas and frozen meals. We're delighting our consumers with innovative new products and consistent value compared to carry-out and delivery."
Almost all of the company's pizza is produced at its plants in Little Chute and Medford, and more than 75 percent of the cheese used on the pizza is from Wisconsin. Little Chute employees make DiGiorno, California Pizza Kitchen, Tombstone and Jack's pizzas.
