Branded ice cream and refrigerated drinks manufacturer and distributor Turkey Hill announced an investment plan on July 5 to expand the firm’s manufacturing capabilities and hire new workers, according to investment firm Peak Rock Capital, the company’s owner.
“Turkey Hill is experiencing strong and growing consumer demand nationwide for its broad assortment of branded ice cream and refrigerated drinks. We as a company are focused on providing our consumers with high quality, authentic products with category-leading flavor variety,” said John Cox, CEO of Turkey Hill in a press release.
The Kroger Co. sold Turkey Hill to an affiliate of Peak Rock Capital in April 2019. Now a standalone company, Turkey Hill is strategically focused on geographic expansion and new product innovation to support increasing consumer demand.
The company’s existing footprint already includes one of the largest production facilities of ice cream and refrigerated drinks in the country – a facility powered by 100% renewable energy and situated on more than 72 acres along the Susquehanna River. Turkey Hill’s investment plan includes capacity expansion, investments in existing lines to provide the latest technology and manufacturing capabilities, and facility renovations and enhancements to support its associates.
A number of new associates will also be hired under Turkey Hill’s plan.
