Global Food Group will invest $4.7 million to locate a new manufacturing and packaging facility in Clinton, Arkansas, where it plans to create 224 new jobs.
The company, which produces products such as retail sandwiches, quesadillas, tortillas and burritos, while also packaging a control brand of products from chicken tenders to all types of potato products, southern vegetables, breads, rolls, and biscuits, will renovate and locate in an existing facility at 245 Quality Drive.
“The Clinton facility will allow us to grow our brands as well as expand in other categories and product lines,” said Robbie Brown, Global Food Group’s president and CEO. “Global Food Group is excited about being a part of the Clinton community.”
“Arkansas continues to maintain a strong roster of companies in the food manufacturing sector,” Governor Mike Beebe said. “An Arkansas-based company like Global Food Group recognizes that expanding close to home in Clinton helps build that momentum toward future success.”
“We are elated that Global Food Group is coming to Clinton and Van Buren County,” said Roger Hooper, Van Buren County Judge. “I’m confident that they will be good community partner with us and that the company and its employees will prosper here.”
