Great Lakes Cheese, Hiram, Ohio, plans to invest $100 million in a 330,000-square-foot cheese plant in Manchester, Tenn., according to knoxnews.com. The cheese manufacturing and packaging plant will create more than 200 jobs.
Global dairy and food giant Nestlé, Vevey, Switzerland, said it will achieve zero waste in all of its 150 European factories by 2020. This means that no factory waste will go to landfill or be incinerated without energy being recovered from the process. Nestlé has invested 26 million Swiss francs (about $29.1 million) to extend its ice cream factory in 6th of October City, Egypt (about 18 miles from Cairo). Ice creams produced there are distributed locally and exported to Jordan, Libya, Lebanon and Tunisia. The factory also produces the super-premium Mövenpick products that are exported to Malaysia. Nestlé Egypt has three factories and seven distribution centers, and employs more than 3,000 people.
