New peanut butter factory

This article was originally published in Foodnews

PEANUT farmers in Pike county, Alabama, are to gain a new outlet for their product with the opening of a new peanut butter factory by Canadian manufacturer, Golden Boy Foods. The plant, to be based in the city of Troy, will make 100 million containers of peanut butter per year, and is expected to create 130 jobs in the area by mid-2013. "Pike county has a history in the peanut butter industry and we are excited to have Golden Boy Foods bring the peanut butter industry to Troy," Carl Sanders, president of the Alabama Peanut Producers Association, told the Troy Messenger. "This could be an encouragement to area farmers to put more acreage into peanuts and others to get into or back into peanut farming," he added. Golden Boy Foods, headquartered in Burnaby, British Columbia, manufactures branded and private label peanut butters, nuts and dried fruits, trail mixes and jams.
