Nova Scotia is providing a $500,000 payroll tax break to help Frito Lay Canada with an upgrade at its New Minas plant.
The company, a division of PepsiCo Canada, is spending more than $2 million in new production equipment and a plan to make the facility more environmentally sustainable. Frito Lay employs about 140 people at its Nova Scotia operation.
The New Minas plant manufactures a number of Frito Lay Canada products including Lay's and Ruffles potato chips. The tax break is for five years.
