You know that delicious Sabra garlic humus they sell at Kroger and Ukrop’s?
It’ll be made in Chesterfield starting in 2010, according to a press release issued by the state of Virginia. (Does that mean Richmond will get the freshest humus?)
The Sabra Dipping Company will eventually employ 260 workers at the Chesterfield facility, according to the release, which said Virginia competed against 2 other states. The plant will make the delicious garlic humus, as well and vegetable spreads.
Governor Kaine approved a $350,000 grant from the Governor’s Opportunity Fund to assist Chesterfield with the project, the release said.
