Dr. Schär USA has broken ground on a 42,000-square-foot expansion of its manufacturing facility in Logan Township, N.J. This expansion comes exactly 10 years after Dr. Schär took eight shovels for their eight U.S. employees and broke ground on this New Jersey gluten-free bread production site. The plant expansion is needed to keep up with increasing demand of their gluten-free bread.

The Logan Township, New Jersey plant produces sliced breads and rolls for North America. The expansion is scheduled to complete in 2022.

Since its founding nearly 40 years ago in South Tyrol, Italy, Dr. Schär has been dedicated to providing gluten free food to the celiac, gluten sensitive and IBS communities; offering a line of gluten-free products under the Schär brand name, including bread, cookies, candy and crackers to frozen items including puff pastry dough and the only gluten free croissant on the market.
