Turkey Hill has announced that it will be investing in its manufacturing operations and increasing hiring activities to support company growth.

Acquired by an affiliate company of Peak Rock Capital from The Kroger in April 2019, the firm is now a standalone company. It intends to focus on geographic expansion and new product innovation to meet consumer demand.

Turkey Hill owns a modern production facility for ice cream and refrigerated drinks that is situated near the Susquehanna River and powered by renewable energy. The company’s expansion plans include an increase in capacity and investment in existing lines to provide the latest technology, as well as renovations and enhancements to support the company’s associates.

Turkey Hill CEO John Cox said: “Turkey Hill is experiencing strong and growing consumer demand nationwide for its broad assortment of branded ice cream and refrigerated drinks.

“We as a company are focused on providing our consumers with high quality, authentic products with category-leading flavour variety.”

The company’s investment plan indicates the company’s commitment to Lancaster County and the surrounding community, and to attract qualified and talented associates to join its team. It said that it will increase hiring in eastern Pennsylvania and nationwide.

Turkey Hill manufactures and distributes branded ice cream and refrigerated drinks for the retail, foodservice and alternative channels internationally.

As part of its corporate responsibility, Turkey Hill is defining and implementing green initiatives to cut down waste, reduce packaging, and minimise outputs into the environment.
