AMSTERDAM, N.Y. (AP) - Beech-Nut Nutrition and Goya Foods Inc. are launching a new line of baby foods geared to the tastes of the Hispanic market that will be produced in Montgomery County.
The companies say they expect strong demand as the Hispanic population continues to grow in the U.S.
The Beech-Nut/Goya product line includes oatmeal/banana and rice/mango cereals and jarred food with guava, mango, apple mango, and a sweet potato, carrots and squash medley among other flavors and preparations.
They're expected to be available in stores nationwide by the end of June.
Beech-Nut says the products will be made at its plant in Amsterdam.
Amsterdam-based Beech-Nut is owned by the Swiss company Hero Group. Goya's headquarters are in Secaucus, N.J.
