Vidalia Denim was unveiled today as the entity behind the codename Project Blue that has now officially purchased from the Town of the Vidalia the vacant Fruit of the Loom facility.

Vidalia Denim will purchase raw cotton, which it will then spin, dye and weave into the denim fabric. The company will ship the denim material to other manufacturers that produce labeled blue jeans.

The company says it will provide 300 jobs and could be a boost to cotton production regionally.
