Haribo buys site for Kenosha County candy factory for $20.7 million

Gummy bear maker Haribo has purchased a 137-acre site in Pleasant Prairie where it will build its first North American candy plant.

Haribo paid the Village of Pleasant Prairie $20.7 million for the site, just west of I-94 and a little more than two miles north of the Illinois state line.

The land is part of 458 acres the village bought from Abbott Labs in May for $37.5 million and will turn into a business park.
