SPRINGFIELD, Ohio – An expansion by Dole Food Company is expected to mean nearly 140 new jobs in western Ohio.

State and regional development officials on Monday announced the $9 million project. Dole said plant capacity is being increased in Springfield to add production of its baby spinach and spring mix packaged vegetables. It’s estimated the jobs will mean $3.2 million in additional payroll.
