SALT LAKE CITY -- Three companies have announced expansion plans in Utah that will create an estimated 1,000 new jobs.

The Governor's Office of Economic Development on Thursday approved tax incentives for Indus Valley Partners, Nature Food Products and the School Improvement Network.

The latter company, which provides education software for students, teachers and school administrators, plans to create 470 jobs over the next decade and to move its headquarters from Midvale to Salt Lake City.

Nature Food Products, a Modesto, Calif., meat wholesaler, intends to build a $20 million pork-processing plant in Box Elder County that will hire 261 people within 10 years.

Indus Valley Partners, a financial services firm, plans to expand its New York operations to Salt Lake City and to create 200 full-time jobs here over the next 11 years.
