Fifty new full times jobs are coming to the City of Dunkirk.

Mayor Willie Rosas and Robert Charleston, CEO of Fieldbrook Foods, held a joint news conference Wednesday afternoon to announce the new positions. These new positions will be part of the manufacturing and warehousing operations.

This will be welcome news to the southern tier community, which has experienced steady job losses over the past decade.

Fieldbrook Farms is considered a leading ice cream producer here in the U.S. The company already employs about 500 people.
