Wisconsin-based company opening facility in South Dakota

Posted: Updated:

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A Wisconsin based company has announced it is opening a 40,000-square-foot cereal ingredient processing facility in South Dakota.

Glanbia Nutritionals Ingredient Technologies announced Tuesday that the company is opening the new facility in Sioux Falls. It will employ 38 people and begin operations in July 2013.

The facility will produce whole and milled flaxseed ingredients for the food and beverage industries. It will replace a plant in Canada that was destroyed by a fire in March.

Company president Jerry O'Dea says Sioux Falls was selected as the location for the facility because of its proximity to the Canadian Flax growing region, its transportation infrastructure, convenience and support from state and local leaders.

Gov. Dennis Daugaard says Glanbia is a leader in the agricultural industry and he's pleased to welcome them.
