Pepperidge Farm completed a $45 million expansion to the company’s manufacturing facility in Richmond, Utah. Its expansion project includes the start of production on a new line of its Goldfish brand crackers, along with a 94,000 square foot addition to the 225,000 square foot production plant.
“Sales of Goldfish crackers continue to grow consistently, and expanding our production capacity is critical for us to stay ahead of this demand,” Irene Chang Britt, Pepperidge Farm President. “We appreciate the support we’ve received from the state of Utah, in particular the Governor’s Office of Economic Development and the Economic Development Council of Utah, the Cache County Development Office and Chamber of Commerce, and the city of Richmond.”
In addition to the new Goldfish cracker line, the expansion added the latest technology and state-of-the-art production capabilities to the site in Richmond, Pepperidge Farm’s only manufacturing facility west of the Rocky Mountains. In Richmond, Pepperidge Farm currently produces around 60 million pounds of cookies, crackers and frozen products each year, including Milano cookies.
