US food major General Mills is to spend US$28m to expand production at its cereal facility in Sharonville, Ohio.

The Cheerios, Häagen-Dazs and Old El Paso brands owner said 33 new jobs will be created as a result.

The company, based in Minneapolis, said investment in the facility will include building renovation, new training programmes to support incoming talent development and new equipment to produce more cereal products. It expects to complete work on the project by February 2022.

Jay Sampson, Cincinnati plant manager at General Mills, said: “At General Mills, we’re accelerating our business and investing meaningfully in our people, brands and capabilities to make food the world loves.

“We are proud to channel that investment in the great city of Sharonville, home of many of our beloved cereals including Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Chex, Fiber One, Cookie Crisp, and Cheerios Oat Crunch.”

The company currently employs more than 200 full-time workers at the facility.
