T. Marzetti Co. Expansion Grows by 80 Jobs in Hart County to 220
Frankfort, KY (STL.News) As Kentucky rebuilds its economy stronger than ever, Gov. Andy Beshear today highlighted T. Marzetti Co.’s additional growth plans, which will increase the company’s expansion project announced a year ago from 140 to 220 full-time jobs and represents the company’s largest-ever investment of $133 million, up from $93 million.
The Marzetti operation in Horse Cave manufactures salad dressings, sauces and other foods for retail and foodservice markets. It currently employs over 500 people.
“As we work to build back our economy and ensure a brighter future for Kentuckians, the same can be said of companies like T. Marzetti Co.,” Gov. Beshear said. “This company already announced a substantial expansion this time last year, and its leaders have taken that project a step further to provide even more quality jobs for residents in and around Hart County. I’m glad Marzetti will represent an even greater part of Kentucky’s future, and I thank the company’s leadership for their commitment to the commonwealth.”
Following the initial expansion announcement by Gov. Beshear and Marzetti executives in February 2020, company leaders pushed pause on the project due to the pandemic.
