NORTHFIELD, ILL. — Kraft Pizza Co., a division of Kraft Foods Inc., is expanding its facility in North Chute, Wis. The expansion will add 100,000 square feet to the facility as well as a new parking lot. A new pizza crust bakery line and assembly line will be installed, enabling an increase in facility production capacity.
Construction is expected to be completed by the end of this year, with equipment installation and production start-up planned for April 2009. Employment at the plant is expected to increase by approximately 300 with the expansion.
Kraft Pizza also announced that its DiGiorno brand has been named the official pizza of the Green Bay Packers for the next three seasons. The sponsorship gives the DiGiorno brand exclusive rights to concession pizza sales at Lambeau Field.
