NAMPA, Idaho -

A company that makes fruit snack pouches plans to open a plant in Nampa in southwest Idaho and bring at least 237 new jobs.

The Idaho Press-Tribune reports that Nampa officials announced at a city council meeting Thursday that GoGo squeeZ has purchased a building in the city.

Nampa Economic Development Director Beth Ineck says the company plans to start making its fruit-filled squeeze packets this fall and reach full production in 2015.

Ineck says that eventually 60 percent of the company's fruit pouches will be distributed to North America from Nampa.
