T. Marzetti is expanding its Horse Cave, Kentucky, processing facility by an extra 184,500 square feet after a recent groundbreaking ceremony. The facility manufactures salad dressings, sauces and other foods for retail and foodservice markets. The expansion will provide additional manufacturing space and include new equipment to increase dressing and sauce production, new processing kitchens, and several packaging lines to meet growing customer demand. The expansion is expected to be complete in the summer of 2022 and will create over 200 jobs for the region.
The project will also include four new ingredient tanks, multiple new pump skids, five new high shear kitchens, one new cook kitchen, two new bottle fillers running at speeds up to 400 bottles per minute, new clean-in-place (CIP) system for cleaning all new equipment, and new labeling, case packing, and robotic palletizing capabilities.
