Kraft Heinz gets $1.2 million from state to create jobs


DOVER, Del. (AP) — The Kraft Heinz Co. is set to receive state funds to create 28 full-time jobs at its Dover plant.

The Delaware Council on Development Finance on Monday approved two grant requests totaling about $1.2 million for the factory. $1.05 million will be used to upgrade the plant’s bakery division, while an addition $131,130 will come from the state strategic fund for the creation of the new jobs.

The grants will be issued through the Delaware Economic Development Office.

Dover’s economic development director William Neaton says additional jobs from Kraft Heinz’s Federalsburg, Maryland plant could also be transferred to Dover.

The company announced in November that it is planning on closing seven plants, including the Federalsburg facility, which is located just across the Maryland-Delaware line by Bridgeville.
