Nestle readies to break ground on $20M dollar plant expansion

Nestle is breaking ground on a $20M dollar plant expansion Thursday afternoon.

The West 25th Street plant in Tremont makes food bases called "flavor solutions" for national chain restaurants and distributors.

The factory - which has never laid off a worker - employs 210 people and accounts for about 20% of U.S. sales for Nestle Professional, a division focused on the food service industry.

The expansion will be finished in early 2013.
