GLK Foods building Appleton production facility

Posted by of Insight Publications

GLK Foods LLC is building a new production facility for its Oh Snap Pickling Co. brand of refrigerated single serve brine-less pickled vegetables.

The new 67,000-square-foot facility is being built at 1725 W. Evergreen Drive, Appleton. Miron Construction is the general contractor.

The new facility will allow GLK Foods to reduce its cost of manufacturing by introducing better line flow, increasing storage capacity, and enabling the procurement of more Wisconsin-grown cucumbers.

GLK introduced the Oh Snap! line in 2015 to capitalize on consumer demand for tasty, healthy, convenient snacks. Since the brand’s inception, it has roughly doubled in sales each year.

Family-owned for more than 100 years, GLK Foods is the world’s largest producer of sauerkraut. Headquartered in Appleton, the company also has manufacturing operations in Bear Creek.
