Negotiations are underway for Allen Harim Foods to buy a processing plant near Millsboro owned by Pinnacle Foods Vlasic.
The company Chief Executive Officer Gary Gladys says that this would allow for an expansion of the firm’s processing capacity and introduce new products.
The former pickle plant is expected to employ an estimated 700 people.
Currently, Pinnacle Foods Vlasic employs around 200 people.
Allen Harim Foods operates a number of processing facilities in Delaware.
