IRVING, TEXAS — Mission Foods Corp. is expanding its tortilla plant in New Brighton, Minn., by 45,000 square feet, to 145,000 square feet.

The new space is expected to be used for additional dry and refrigerated product storage. In addition to the expansion, Mission Foods intends to refurbish about 20,000 square feet of office space and upgrade the facility’s heating and cooling systems.

The project is expected to be completed later this month.

The New Brighton plant was built in the 1970s and was acquired by Mission Foods a little more than four years ago.
