MILLSBORO, Del. (AP) — Allen Harim Foods says it is negotiating the purchase of the former Pinnacle Foods facility near Millsboro where Vlasic pickles were produced until November.
The News Journal reports the firm plans to expand its operations with a $100 million investment. It would employ about 700 people at the facility.
Allen Harim is based in Korea and says the expansion in Delaware represents its commitment to the U.S. market.
A spokeswoman for Gov. Jack Markell says the company plans to completely remodel the facility for poultry processing and would continue to operate its Harbeson plant.
The facility is expected to begin operating by November 2014.
