Georgia-Pacific has declared its plans of putting an investment of more than USD 145 million for its facility located in its Dixie plant in Darlington, South Carolina. The invested money will be used in expanding its plate and bowl making operations and in the up gradation of the facility. This latest outlay is because of the rise in consumers’ demand for these well-known household disposable products- paper plates and bowls.

The demand for our plates and bowls continues to grow as consumers value the Dixie brand’s unique combination of convenience and performance.”
The investment at the Dixie manufacturing unit is intended to enhance and modernize the paper plate and bowl operations.
