Food Manufacturer Opening Plant in Virginia

Sabra Dipping Company, a manufacturer of specialized food products, will open a manufacturing facility in Chesterfield County, Virginia, according to the Virginia governor's office. The project is expected to create 260 new jobs at full operations in 2010. New York-headquartered Sabra, a joint venture between the Strauss Group and PepsiCo's Frito-Lay North America divisions, manufacturers and sells hummus and vegetable dips. "We are projecting growth and planning exciting innovation," says Ronen Zohar, Sabra's CEO. "We are very optimistic about our company's plans for Chesterfield County and look forward to breaking ground and setting into the community." Incentives offered to the company include a $350,000 grant from the state, along with training assistance and enterprise zone tax credits, as well as local incentives that the governor's office did not quantify.
