HANOVER, Pa. (AP) - A fresh-cut vegetables producer is adding 250 jobs in a central Pennsylvania town that bills itself as the world’s snack food capital.

The York Dispatch reports (https://bit.ly/1dzDJVc ) the jobs are part of a major expansion at the production facility of Apio Inc. in Hanover.

Jason Frost, manager of Apio’s Penn Township plant, says the $22.5 million project is expected to be completed by the end of the year.

The expansion will more than triple the size of the facility, increasing it to 64,000 square feet.

Frost says the project is one of the largest in company history.

The California-based company sells specialty fresh vegetables and party tray products under its Eat Smart and GreenLine brand names, as well as under private labels.

Hanover is also home to Snyder’s of Hanover and Utz Quality Foods.
