Birds Eye plans expansion in Wisconsin
US food company Conagra Brands, owner of frozen vegetables brand Birds Eye, is expanding operations at its facility in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin. The project expected to create about 140 full-time jobs over the next five years.

Conagra Brands plans to invest approximately $78 million to modernize and expand the current 350,000-ft2 cold storage and vegetable packaging facility on Green Valley Road, which supports the Birds Eye frozen vegetables operation. The Birds Eye operations are supported by almost 800 employees at both the Beaver Dam and Darien plants in Wisconsin.

Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation is supporting the expansion by authorizing up to $750,000 in state income tax credits over the next five years as an incentive.
