Allen Harim Foods says it is negotiating the purchase of the former Pinnacle Foods facility near Millsboro where Vlasic pickles were produced until November.

The News Journal reports the firm plans to expand its operations with a $100 million investment. It would employ about 700 people at the facility.

Allen Harim is based in Korea and says the expansion in Delaware represents its commitment to the U.S. market.

“We are excited about bringing Millsboro into our family,” chief executive officer Gary E. Gladys told the News Journal. “The new facility will expand our processing capacity, allow us to introduce new products and hire more employees. This will have a significant impact in Delaware, and serve as a symbol of our deep commitment to the United States market with an investment of an estimated $100 million.”

A spokeswoman for Gov. Jack Markell says the company plans to completely remodel the facility for poultry processing and would continue to operate its Harbeson plant.

The facility is expected to begin operating by November 2014.
