AdvancePierre Foods, Cincinnati, opened the doors to its newest manufacturing facility in Vineland, N.J. The 75,000-square-foot facility contains two raw and four cooked production lines for Philly steak.
Construction of the facility began in June 2016 under the tenure of Allied Specialty Foods, which AdvancePierre acquired in October 2016. The acquisition expanded AdvancePierre’s market position in the Philly steak platform, providing entry into fully cooked product offerings.
“This new facility expands our production capacity in a product category that is primed for growth,” says George Chappelle, chief operating officer. “The investment in four cooked production lines underscores the importance of this new capability in our product portfolio in meeting the market demand for this versatile, easy-to-prepare, premium product.”
