Pickle Plant Expected To Create Up To 50 Jobs

Posted: Updated:

MACON, Ga. (AP) - A sliced-pickle plant planned for central Georgia is expected to create up to 50 jobs.

The plant is being opened in Bibb County by Mr. Chips Inc., a subsidiary of Pinconning, Mich.-based Bay View Food Products Co.

The Telegraph of Macon reports that the company makes and packages sliced pickles and relish, mainly for institutional uses such as schools, fast food chains and salad makers.

Pat Topping, senior vice president of the Macon Economic Development Commission, says the company is buying the former 120,000-square-foot Plastican building on Lillian Drive and a 32.51-acre site nearby on Joe Tamplin Boulevard for its Georgia operations.

Joseph Janicke, president of Mr. Chips and Bay View Foods, said in an email that the company hopes to start production in the beginning of 2015.
