CHICAGO – Land O' Frost is movin’ on up. The company revealed its new offices in Munster, Ind. which were designed and built by Wight & Company.

The demonstration kitchen and pilot plant, which are housed on the first floor, feature a US Dept. of Agriculture-approved facility featuring a spice room and meat curing and smoking equipment.
