Tasty Baking Company Opens "Green" Plant at Philadelphia Navy Yard
The new 345,000-square foot manufacturing and distribution plant utilizes water conservation, recycled building materials, daylight harvesting, and energy-efficient HVAC systems. It is currently awaiting official certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. The facility will produce the brand's core products including Krimpets, Kandy Kakes, Juniors, pies, cookie bars, and cupcakes.
"While we celebrate our new bakery and the future of the Tastykake brand with significantly enhanced manufacturing capabilities, we simultaneously celebrate the legacy of the Hunting Park bakery and its irreplaceable role in the development and growth of the company and our beloved brand," said Charles P. Pizzi, company president and CEO.
The company will continue to support the Allegheny West Foundation, a community development corporation based near the old Hunting Park plant.
