ALBANY, N.Y. - (AP) -- The leading supplier of freeze-dried foods for the United States military is expanding its operations with a facility in Monroe County.

Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Monday announced that Oregon-based OFD Foods, LLC will build a 50,000-square-foot plant in Henrietta that will create 30 full-time jobs.
