Posted: Updated:

CENTERVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A food processing plant in Middle Tennessee is expanding and will hire 64 more workers.

State officials announced Wednesday that AGRANA Fruit US will put about $10 million into construction at its plant in Centerville.

Company president Bob Prendes said the demand for yogurt has seen explosive growth in recent years and the Centerville plant has played a key role in AGRANA Fruit US' success.

Centerville Mayor Bob Bohn said the expansion news is very welcome in the small, rural city.

There will be a job fair on Oct. 11-12 at the Hickman County Career Center.
