Ben & Jerry's moving forward with Vermont expansion plans

ST. ALBANS, Vt. (AP) " Ben & Jerry's says it is moving forward with plans to expand its manufacturing facility in St. Albans, Vermont.

The ice cream company announced Tuesday that the roughly $14 million, 40,000-square-foot expansion project includes a wastewater treatment plant and a new warehouse and packaging room.

The new space is expected to allow the company to boost production by 15 to 20 percent. The St. Albans location currently makes about two-thirds of the ice cream the company distributes globally.

The company hopes to open the new buildings in November.
