Griffin Food Expands Muskogee, Oklahoma, Operations
The company will invest in flexible packaging equipment to support new business capacity. The new machinery will allow Griffin to package portion-size food products efficiently and effectively for use in the restaurant industry.
“We are very excited about the future of flexible packaging and the growth potential that it will have for Griffin Foods,” said Darrin Smith, Vice President of Operations for Griffin Foods.
The Oklahoma Department of Commerce awarded Griffin Foods a Business Expansion Incentive Program incentive in the amount of $150,000. The program assists Oklahoma companies making major capital investments in depreciable items like machinery, equipment, and buildings. The incentive makes annual cash payment awards to help companies grow and boost business expansion investments in Oklahoma.
Additionally, the company was approved for a local incentive through the city of Muskogee Foundation Strategic Investment Program in the amount of $9,800. This is a performance-based incentive and will be granted once supporting documentation for the expansion project is provided.
“Griffin Foods is a staple of the Muskogee community just as their products are in many businesses and households across America. We are thankful for their continued partnership, investment, and employment opportunities,” added Jeff Underwood, Port Muskogee Industrial Development.
Griffin Foods is well-known for the production and packaging of syrups, molasses, imitation vanilla, mustards, and other liquid food grade products.
