More than 40 jobs are being created by a cider company due to a recent boom in the industry.
New brands have helped improve sales, and Hereford brewers Bulmers said it was re-opening its bottling line at its Plough Lane factory.
The firm's owners, brewers Scottish & Newcastle, announced on Tuesday a 14% rise in pre-tax profits.
Bulmers is being prosecuted for alleged health and safety breaches after an outbreak of Legionnaires' disease.
It faces charges after 28 people contracted the disease and two died in the city in 2004.
The bacteria was identified in a cooling tower at Plough Lane.
Nalco, a water treatment company which had a contract with the cider producer, has also been charged.
