Nestle’s foodservice solutions business Nestle Professional USA is preparing to launch a $7.5 million expansion project at its Trenton, MO manufacturing facility to increase the location’s capacity for dry mix products and its TRIO brand of sauces and gravies, Missouri officials announced.

“The pandemic intensified the need for high quality, easy to use, restaurant products and we are confident that our solutions will continue to drive our recovery,” Perry Miele, president and CEO of Nestle Professional USA said in a recent release issued by the state’s Department of Economic Development. “Nestle’s investment in Trenton strengthens our market position and enhances our US manufacturing capabilities. We’re excited to begin adding staff to this location to support our enhanced operations and the local community.”

Acquired by Nestle in 2018, the former Conagra Brands plant in Trenton currently produces Chef-mate products with a proprietary cooked-before-canning process, which was invented at the site in 1964. The company said it intends to focus on “high-growth” areas within the out-of-home market. 

“Nestle’s expansion is great news for Trenton and will positively impact the community now and in the future,” said Missouri Gov. Mike Parsons in a statement.  

Work on the project commenced in 2021. Over 30 jobs will be created when the expansion is completed.
