Unilever will spend $99 million to expand its Independence, Mo., facility, which will begin manufacturing dry mixes for soups, sauces and gravies under the Knorr and Lipton brands. Previously, the plant was used to make Wish-Bone brand products, which Unilever has since sold, and Hellmann’s salad dressings, which the company is moving to another production facility.

As part of a restructuring, Mondelez will invest $40 million to expand its Henrica County, Va., plant, while at the same time closing one in Philadelphia. The Henrica County plant will add 38,000 sq. ft. and a new production line for Ritz crackers.
