The company says it's shifting a production line for SPAM products from Fremont, Nebraska, to its Dubuque facility. That will create 58 jobs.

With the move, Hormel also plans to spend $13 million in new capital investments in Iowa.

In exchange, the company is getting nearly $600,000 in tax credits.
