General Mills plans to invest $8.5 million in a facility in McDonough, GA, to distribute Blue Buffalo products throughout the Southeast.

“Blue Buffalo is the #1 Wholesome Natural pet food brand in the U.S and we are pleased to be expanding with the addition of the facility in McDonough,” said Billy Bishop, president of General Mills Pet Segment. “This facility will enable us to better serve consumers, pet parents and pets in the southeast with the BLUE brand of products.”

The project will create more than 50 jobs, according to a press release from the Henry County Development Authority.

General Mills, headquartered in Minneapolis, MN, serves the world by making food people love. Following the company’s acquisition of Blue Buffalo Pet Products, Inc. earlier this year, they are also a leading manufacturer and marketer in the wholesome natural pet food category.

The distribution facility will be a 408,000-square-foot facility.

General Mills (NYSE: GIS) completed its $8 billion acquisition of Blue Buffalo in April.
