Conagra Brands expanding Birds Eye Foods operations at
Beaver Dam cold storage, packing facility
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
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.
