A cereal and snack food company has announced plans to relocate its manufacturing facility from Frankfort to Lebanon. New York-based Catalina Snacks says it will lease a 100,000-square-foot space in the Lebanon Business Park.
The food maker, which specializes in keto-friendly products, says it made the decision to move because it wants to broaden its manufacturing capacity and add more jobs in Indiana.
“We’re thrilled to open this new manufacturing facility in the state of Indiana and double our production space and employee count,” said Joel Warady, president of Catalina Snacks. “This cutting-edge plant will consolidate our manufacturing to one central location, increase our output, and enable us to reach even more consumers across the country looking for better-for-you versions of their favorite comfort foods.”
The company says it explored several options for the new facility, but says it decided on Boone County because of its highway access and central location.
Catalina Snacks says the facility will be up and running before the end of the year.
The company manufactures cooks, snacks and cereals that are lower in carbohydrates and sugars. It says total revenues have grown 365% over the last year.
