U.S.-based frozen foods company Birds Eye Foods, part of food company Conagra Brands Inc., plans to expand its Beaver Dam operations over the next five years with $78 million investment.

The project will include expanding and modernizing the 350,000 square foot storage and vegetable packaging facility in Beaver Dam.

The expansion will boost employment opportunities with about 140 full-time jobs and indirectly adding 84 jobs in the region over the next five years.

Moreso, the new facility will support families throughout the area and continue to strengthen the local economy as well.
