Golden Boy grows in Alabama
Golden Boy Foods, a private brand food manufacturer, is expanding its footprint in Alabama.
The supplier of nut butters, nuts and more is set to invest more than $13 million to expand its peanut butter production at its Troy, Ala.-based facility, adding a 170,000-sq.-ft. building and creating 67 full-time jobs.
The growth essentially doubles the company’s industrial footprint in the area, where it has been operating since 2011, and makes it one of the largest private label nut butter facilities in North America.
“We believe this will allow even greater productivity. The work ethic we have found is second to none, again leading to our decision to expand in Troy,” said Robert Jacobs, plant manager, Golden Boy. “We are proud to call ourselves Trojans and will continue to look at opportunities to further our investment in Troy. We will be one of the largest nut butter plants in the U.S. and firmly believe that this growth will continue into the future.”
Construction on the new facility begins soon with doors expecting to open in spring 2021. In addition to the peanut butter business, Golden Boy Foods produces premium nuts, fruits and trail mixes for retailers in North America.
