Rosina Food Products has wrapped up its $22.7 million expansion at its Cheektowaga and West Seneca frozen food facilities.
The project, which began in 2014, led to the creation of 50 new jobs, pushing Rosina's local work force to more than 400 people.
The expansion allowed Rosina to make an additional 10 million pounds of pasta each year and to package an extra 5 million pounds of protein items annually. The project also included a new $2.4 million Customer Focus Center that features a research and development kitchen and a production kitchen, allowing Rosina to showcase its capabilities to customers and develop new products.
The project received tax breaks through the Erie County Industrial Development Agency, along with a pair of grants, totaling $5.5 million, from Empire State Development.
