Smithfield Foods Expands North Las Vegas, Nevada, Operations

Smithfield Foods, Inc. and its customized dry seasoning blends, sauces, dressings, and glazes business division, Saratoga Food Specialties, will expand and nearly double its footprint in North Las Vegas, Nevada. The project is expected to create 50 jobs.

The plant will produce the company's premier sauces, dressings, and glazes facility. According to company officials, Saratoga is a custom sauce and seasoning manufacturer that provides proprietary products to the largest restaurants in the world. In addition to its North Las Vegas location, Saratoga has facilities in Eastvale, California and Bolingbrook, Illinois.

"We're delighted to deepen our roots in the North Las Vegas community and grow our great workforce in Nevada," said Jim Bejna, vice president of operations for Saratoga. "This most recent expansion is a testament to the extraordinary growth of our business and the incredible support we have received from local government and community partners."

The project was supported by the Nevada Governor's Office of Economic Development and the Las Vegas Global Economic Alliance.

"It's our goal at LVGEA to support a pro-business environment that enables companies to not only find a home in Nevada, but to thrive here," said Jared Smith, COO for the LVGEA. "We're thrilled that Saratoga has chosen to further invest in our region and bring even more new jobs to our area to the benefit of our local economy and community."
