MG Foods Chooses Melbourne, Florida, for Production-Distribution Hub

MG Foods Inc. will invest $2.3 million to renovate and relocate into a new production and distribution facility in Melbourne, Florida. The company plans to hire 95 associates.

The Economic Development Commission of Florida’s Space Coast said it worked closely with MG Foods during the highly competitive site selection process, communicating the business advantages of a Brevard location.

“We are very excited to open our newest operation in Melbourne. By working strategically with the EDC, our team chose Melbourne as the location due to its proximity to our customers, as well as a terrific pool of prospective employees to draw from. We are making great progress on the construction of our facility which will be open later this fall”, explained Rich Lindsay Director of Operations in Melbourne.

“We already have a great pipeline of customers established, so when we open, we will hit the ground running and will need great people to help us in a variety of positions, including Class-B drivers, food production workers, warehouse order selectors, and office staff,” Lindsay added.

“We are thrilled MG Foods selected Brevard County for its corporate expansion,” said Lynda Weatherman, President & CEO of the EDC. “This announcement is another great example of how Brevard’s industry base is continuing to diversify, adding job opportunities for all Space Coast residents.”
