Lotus Bakeries, a snacking products producer, will expand operations in North Carolina with an investment of at least $62 million in the City of Mebane.
The company will add up to 90 new jobs and significantly increase the size of its current facility in Alamance County.
Lotus Bakeries began in the village of Lembeke (Belgium) in 1932 and is now active worldwide with the Lotus, Lotus Biscoff, Annas, Nākd and BEAR brands, among others. The company’s facility in Mebane was the company’s first production facility in the U.S.
The company’s new project in Alamance County will expand its current footprint an additional 111,000 sq. ft. and add three new production lines to its operations.
“It is an exciting time in Alamance County. It’s great to see the next chapter open for this important manufacturing site in our community,” stated N.C. Representative Ricky Hurtado. “Lotus Bakeries is a valued regional employer, and we welcome their new investment in Mebane.”
