Lancaster Colony-owned T. Marzetti reveals plant expansion plan

By Andy Coyne

US food group Lancaster Colony’s T. Marzetti subsidiary is to expand its facility in Columbus, Ohio.

It will spend US$22.8m on adding 17,000 sq ft of space and installing three new packaging lines at its existing facility to meet “growing product demand”.

The project will also include the renovation of the facility’s interior and exterior to improve material and ingredient storage, shipping areas and utilities.

T. Marzetti manufactures and markets retail products including salad dressings, fruit and vegetable dips and frozen baked goods with brands including Marzetti, New York Bakery, Sister Schubert’s, Angelic Bakehouse and Bantam Bagels. It also makes products under license, including Olive Garden dressings, Chick-fil-A sauces and Buffalo Wild Wings sauce, and services the foodservice channel.

It said the expansion will create 20 new jobs.

A company spokesperson said: “This expansion will allow us to increase production capacity, upgrade technology and support the growth of our large foodservice customers. Among other items, this facility will produce portion control sauces for restaurant chains.”

The company’s chief supply chain officer Dave Nagle said: “With this new investment, we are expanding production capacity and strengthening the future of our presence in Columbus for many years to come.”

T. Marzetti’s presence in central Ohio dates back to 1896, when Italian immigrant Teresa Marzetti opened her first restaurant in Columbus.

It now employs more than 3,000 people.
