Nestlé Purina PetCare announced the completion of a $19 million expansion project in Dunkirk, NY, to increase production capacity for Fancy Feast Savory Cravings, a new cat treat.

The expansion features an automated production process for the treats, which are available in beef, salmon and beef-and-crab flavors. Using a traditional bar design concept from Nestlé’s confectionary business, the Fancy Feast Savory Cravings bars can be broken into smaller bites.

Purina currently employs more than 500 associates in Dunkirk, where operations began in 1972.

Purina’s investment in Dunkirk operations is one of several active expansions at the company’s pet care facilities across the U.S. In total, $2 billion is being committed to Purina’s U.S. pet care operations and the creation of more than 900 jobs by 2025.

“Purina is proud to continue investing in western New York, providing critical jobs for the region and keeping our employees safe during a challenging year, all while supporting our local community and providing innovative new products from the trusted brands Americans depend on,” said Anthony De La O, Purina factory manager in Dunkirk.
