INDEPENDENCE, Mo. (AP) - Unilever plans to expand a food processing facility in the Kansas City area with the help of some incentives from Missouri.

Gov. Jay Nixon said Thursday that Unilever plans a $99 million investment that is expected to create about 70 new full-time jobs at its Independence facility.

The plant currently processes wet foods, such as salad dressing. Over the next two years, it will be converted to a dry mix facility for things such as soups, sauces and gravies.

The Department of Economic Development says Unilever could receive up to $6.2 million in state incentives if it meets job creation and investment criteria.
