Nestlé has announced plans for a $100 million expansion of its frozen-food plant in Gaffney. S.C.

The expansion will add a production line and expand an existing one for the plant’s production of Stouffer’s and Lean Cuisine frozen dinners. It will lead to an additional 160 jobs.

The move comes about six months after Nestlé began a $100 million expansion of its plant in Jonesboro, Ark., to ramp up production of Hot Pockets.

“As people spent more time at home, they rediscovered the convenience, value and great taste of frozen foods,” plant manager Nicole Caldwell said in a statement. “Our investment in the Gaffney factory will ensure that we can continue to meet consumer demand for two of our most popular and well-known brands – Stouffer's and Lean Cuisine.”
