US-based dairy products manufacturer Daisy Brand is to build a new factory in Iowa, supported by state funding.

Family-owned Daisy Brand plans to invest $626.5m in a 750,000 square-foot facility, creating 106 new jobs to start, a number anticipated to grow up to 255 as demand increases.

City officials in Boone have approved the project and the Iowa Economic Development Authority will provide $7m in funding for the facility, as well as tax benefits, according to a government statement.

Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds said demand for the company’s products has created the need for an additional manufacturing facility.

“With a third of the nation’s top food manufacturers located in Iowa and 26% of our manufacturing industry attributed to food processing, Iowa and Daisy are a perfect fit,” Reynolds said.

“Daisy Brand’s investment in Iowa further reinforces our standing as a manufacturing powerhouse and reputation for fostering an environment where businesses succeed and grow.”
