Nestle SA said late Tuesday that its subsidiary Nestle Purina PetCare would invest $550 million to expand its pet-food manufacturing facility in Georgia, U.S., as a result of growing demand.

The Swiss food-and-beverage giant said it would create up to 130 jobs at the Hartwell facility--where flagship brands like Fancy Feast are produced--adding processing, packaging and warehouse capacity.

The investment is part of a broader growth plan for Purina in the U.S., which includes the new factories in Ohio and North Carolina, the company said.
