VALDOSTA, Ga. (AP) — Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp says a Mexican firm plans to open a food processing plant in south Georgia, bringing about 74 jobs to the Valdosta area.
Kemp said Tuesday that a subsidiary of Grupo Bimbo will invest more than $25 million in the project. Kemp said the facility will produce bread-based buns for customers across the southeastern United States.
The company has more than 37 bakeries in nearly two-dozen countries and produces several types of hamburger, hot dog, and sandwich buns for quick-service restaurants.
