MADISON Conagra Brands, owner of Birds Eye, a leading brand in frozen vegetables, will invest about $78 million to expand operations at its Beaver Dam facility. The project is expected to create about 140 full-time jobs during the next five years.

The project calls for modernizing and increasing the 350,000-square-foot cold storage and vegetable packaging facility on Green Valley Road in Beaver Dam that 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.

The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation is supporting the expansion by authorizing up to $750,000 in state income tax credits during the next five years. The actual amount of tax credits that Conagra Brands will receive is contingent upon the number of jobs created and the amount of capital investment during that period.
