ConAgra Foods Lamb Weston officially marked the completion of an 85,000-square-foot expansion of its potato processing plant in Pasco WA, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by company officials as well as local and state dignitaries.
Lamb Weston, a global supplier of frozen potato products, began construction in May on the multi-million dollar expansion effort designed to meet customer demand while providing capabilities to manage long-term growth effectively. Two new production lines for making potato- and onion-based appetizers were added to the facility.
As part of the expansion, Lamb Weston anticipates adding approximately 100 jobs, bringing the total to 525 employees at the facility.
Lamb Weston is a business of ConAgra Foods Inc, one of North America’s leading packaged food companies, serving grocery retailers, restaurants, and other foodservice establishments.
