Posted: Updated:

BROOKINGS, S.D. (AP) - Chicago-based Bel Brands USA is holding a groundbreaking ceremony this week for a new cheese plant in Brookings.

Gov. Dennis Daugaard, Bel Brands officials, Brookings Mayor Tim Reed and representatives from South Dakota State University are expected to attend the Thursday event.

Earlier this year, Bel Brands announced that they had chosen Brookings for the location of its third cheese plant in the United States.

The company said it will invest about $100 million in the plant that will employ 200 people initially and could mean up to 400 jobs within three years of becoming fully operational in 2014.
