Cincinnati-based SugarCreek announced plans to open a new $120 million manufacturing facility in Cambridge City, Ind. The new 435,000-square-foot plant, which is scheduled to open in July, is said to be the largest sous vide production facility in the United States. It will employ 400 people within the first three years of opening.
New products that will be produced at the plant will encompass all ranges of flavor profiles in tune with today’s hottest trends, including all proteins (whole muscle and other), beef, pork, chicken, lamb, seafood, breakfast items and fruits and vegetables.
The ready-to-eat processor also announced plans to introduce a new 183,000-square-foot corporate headquarters and culinary innovation center (opening in March) with partial production facilities, two test kitchens and a USDA-certified R&D lab.
