“The journey started when Jackie asked her husband Mike to go on a quest for her favorite candy... licorice,” it reads. “Hers was a special request, it needed to be consciously crafted with select gluten-free ingredients.”"
American Licorice Co. has announced plans to invest $10 million in the expansion of its La Porte, Ind. manufacturing facility.
The Bend, Ore.-based candy maker plans to equip and renovate its 285,000 square-foot facility. The expansion, which will include the installation of a licorice production line and the addition of a rail spur so the company can receive ingredients by rail, is expected to be completed by 2015.
