Nearly 150 jobs to be created.
Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee, Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe and Babynov USA officials announced last week that the company will establish its first U.S. production facility in Red Boiling Springs.
Babynov USA will invest approximately $44.9 million and create 147 jobs in Macon County.
Babynov USA is a new division of Global Baby, a French organic baby food manufacturer. The company will renovate an existing facility in Red Boiling Springs to expand its market to the United States.
Founded in 1999, Global Baby provides ready-to-feed baby milks and prepared food products, such as fruit and vegetable purees, full meals and milk-based desserts. The group is headquartered in Paris, France. The Macon County facility will be the company’s first in North America.
