American food firm Kellogg Company is preparing to launch an expansion project at a plant-based foods manufacturing plant in Zanesville, OH operated by its subsidiary, Worthington Foods Inc., the Zanesville-Muskingum Port Authority announced in a release this week.

The facility manufactures Morningstar Farms brand plant-based food products. During the $43 million project, Kellogg’s spend $18 million to increase the facility’s footprint by 40,000 sq ft to 50,000 sq ft and $25 million on equipment, according to the port authority. 40 new full-time jobs will be created as a result of the investment.

“Expanding the facility will help us continue to meet consumer demand for their favorite plant-based products,” a Kellogg Company spokesperson told the Zanesville Times-Reporter.

Members of the Zanesville City Council approved project and tax exemptions related to the project on Monday, according to the newspaper.

Work on the project is slated to begin this September and reach completion by December 2021.
