Fruits and Vegetable Processor to Create 75 Jobs in NC With $10 Million Investment
Incorporated in North Carolina in 2006, Aseptia uses technology licensed at North Carolina State University to produce shelf-stable food products that maintain flavor, color and nutrients of fresh foods without refrigeration. The Wright Foods facility will primarily focus on producing shelf-stable retail food products for other food companies.
"Consumers are demanding more nutritious and better-tasting foods and at the same time, they want foods that are convenient and affordable," said Aseptia President and CEO J. Michael Drozd. "Aseptia's technology enables the production of food products that meet this ever-growing consumer demand."
The project was made possible in part by a $150,000 grant from the One North Carolina Fund. The average annual wage for the new jobs will be $31,470 (plus benefits). The Montgomery County average annual wage is $28,808.
