    FAIRFIELD, Calif., June 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Calbee America, Inc., a
 subsidiary of Japan-based Calbee Foods Co., Ltd. announces its move to a
 new manufacturing plant at 2600 Maxwell Way in Fairfield, California's
 Solano Business Park. The company moved its manufacturing operation from
 Sebastopol, CA where it had been for 8 years. All Calbee management-level
 employees were part of the move.
     The new facility is 40,000 square-feet, four-times larger than its
 plant in Sebastopol, and includes the ability to expand by 35,000
 square-feet. Plans are also underway for the company to move its
 headquarters from Torrance, CA to the Fairfield site. The Torrance location
 would then function as a sales office.
     Calbee America markets and distributes healthful snack foods including
 Snapea Crisps, Shrimp Flavored Chips and a variety of other chip products.
 Its offerings are supplied to retailers throughout the United States and
 Canada. The Fairfield plant handles all manufacturing for the United States
 and Canada.
     "Fairfield is a very important location for our company. When we
 decided to move we looked at many Bay Area sites-from north of Santa Rosa,
 south to Fremont, and in the end Fairfield was the most favorable," says
 Masanori Yasunaga, Calbee's president and CEO. "Its location near major
 freeways makes it a good distribution point, plus its excellent water
 quality and supply were a major factor in our decision to move here,"
     "We are pleased that Calbee America has moved to Fairfield," said Curt
 Johnston, assistant community development director for Fairfield. "It has
 joined a significant list of food manufacturers who recognize this city as
 a choice location because of its room for businesses to grow, superior
 water quality and supply, and its access to various transportation
 options."
     Fairfield Offers Important Business Benefits
     Fairfield continues to appeal to retail and commercial entities seeking
 to grow their businesses for many reasons: an accessible Bay Area location,
 abundant space, value-priced real estate, a diverse workforce, and a unique
 set of regional amenities. For additional information on the city of
 Fairfield, visit http://www.fairfield4business.com
