Consumer packaged food and beverage manufacturer WhiteWave Foods Co. will locate operations in Clearfield County, Pa., creating at least 100 new jobs.

The 220,000-square-foot vacant facility located in Sandy Township is projected to generate a capital investment in infrastructure improvement, equipment and employee training costs. The expansion is expected to create 100 new jobs and retain eight existing positions.

”At WhiteWave, our goal is to change the way the world eats for the better, and we look forward to continuing to advance this purpose with our new operations in Clearfield County,” says Blaine McPeak, president of WhiteWave, Broomfield, Colo. “We are grateful for the opportunity to grow our WhiteWave team in the area through our new production facility."
