Vanee Foods Co. expects to have a new hot-fill bottling line operational at its Broadview, Ill., facility by the end of this month.
The Berkeley, Ill.-based food company said the total investment of the project, which can handle bottles ranging from 8 ounces to 1 gallon, is $8 million.
“Hot-fill bottling is a logical extension of our capabilities. This line gives us new avenues for growth in all of our primary business segments, including co-packing, custom formulation for chain restaurants, and broadline food service,” said Luke Vanee, vice president of marketing and communications, in a statement.
Vanee Foods makes gravies, sauces, soups, soup bases and entrees.
