Candy bar brings new jobs to Albany

Albany - 28 new associates were hired to help produce the line, which was previously produced in Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania. A new line, CocoVia, will also be produced at the Albany plant. "It's to help lower cholesterol. It's got coco flavanols in them. So, it's a great product, tastes great and really helps your heart," says Plant Homier, Plant Manager.

Chamber President, Tim Martin says, "This is an existing industry that knows who we are, our pluses and minuses, and have chosen to reinvest additional time, additional capital, additional resources in this community. This is incredibly fine news today."

CocoVia is not sold in stores yet, but is available online. The kudos granola bars can be purchased in stores and are available in four different flavors.
