Work has started on an expansion of the Sabra Dipping Co. food factory in Chesterfield County.

Sabra is adding 40,000 square feet to its 220,000-square-foot factory, which employs more than 700 people and expects to add 12 full-time jobs when the expansion is complete.

The addition will improve the factory’s efficiency and decrease its carbon footprint by enabling freshly packaged hummus to get to stores and to consumers more quickly, according to Sabra.
