The leading U.S. producer of tofu has announced plans for a new $146 million plant in Louisville, Ky.

House Foods America Corp. plans to build a new 350,000-square-foot facility in the Jefferson Riverport industrial park in southwest Louisville. Construction is scheduled to begin in 2022 and be completed by 2025.

The plant will make tofu and related products, and will employ 109 people at an average wage of $22.39 an hour. The state is giving House Foods economic development incentives worth up to $4 million over 10 years. One of the major considerations in the deal was wastewater treatment, said a spokesperson for Louisville’s job attraction agency: “It takes a lot of water to make tofu. This is a big wastewater project as well."
