Food Industry in KS Could Grow

Following the announcement of a new chocolate factory in Topeka, some state officials say the food industry could help attract more jobs to Kansas. Last week, Mars Chocolate announced it will build a 250 million dollar factory in Topeka. Secretary of Commerce Pat George says with expertise already in the state, Kansas could attract more food processing jobs.

Kansas currently has beef processing and other types of food production, such as a Frito Lay factory in Topeka. The Mars plant is expected to open in 2013 and create around 200 jobs
