More Goldfish mean more jobs for Cache County

It seems that Pepperidge Farm needs more space to make cheesy goldfish snacks. So it is planning to invest $44 million and add jobs as it expands its plant near Richmond, in Cache Valley. The investment will be used to reconfigure the facility and add a third Goldfish production line.

The new line will boost production by around 30 million pounds a year, doubling the poundage of Goldfish produced. And that means the plant, which has been in operation for 38 years, will be adding as many as 54 workers to the plant's current workforce of 385. Salt Lake Tribune
