J.M. Smucker To Break Ground On New Building

ORRVILLE, Ohio (AP) -- Food maker J.M. Smucker Co. needs more room after its recent acquisition of Folgers coffee and is ready to add a new building to its northeast Ohio headquarters.

Smucker is known for its jams and jellies but also is the company behind brands including Jif peanut butter, Pillsbury baking products and Eagle Brand condensed milk. It plans to break ground this week on a four-story building that will serve as the new main building for Smucker's corporate campus in Orrville, about 45 miles south of Cleveland.

Officials say the company needs the expansion to accommodate Folgers positions being relocated from southwest Ohio. Smucker bought Folgers from Cincinnati-based Procter & Gamble Co. in a $3 billion deal last year.
