Food Manufacturer Expanding in North Carolina

American Food Resources LLC, a wholesale food manufacturer and distributor, will invest $3 million to expand its facility in Nashville, North Carolina, according to the North Carolina governor's office. The company plans to add 70 new jobs at an average annual salary of $35,523 plus benefits. "This expansion solidifies a strong operational base for years to come," says Tim Carper, American Food Resources CEO. "It also complements our cheese and dairy operation as we look to the future in the natural and organic marketplace." The company will purchase part of an out-of-state business and move its operations to the facility in Nashville, where a new canning line and vegetable cooking will be added. Incentives offered to the company include a $50,000 grant from the state that will be matched by a local government agency.
