Mira International Foods Establishes Beaufort, South Carolina, Operations

Mira International Foods Inc., a food crafting and distributing company, plans to establish operations in Beaufort, South Carolina. The more than $2 million project is expected to create 28 new jobs.

Located at 20 Eleanore Fine Road in Beaufort, Mira’s new 48,960-square-foot facility will increase the company’s operating capacity to meet growing demand. The location is expected to be operational by January 2022.

"Mira is excited to invest in South Carolina and partner with its constituents to robustly grow the business. Beaufort, South Carolina is a strategic location, which allows us to harness the talents of a growing and vibrant workforce, often with the benefit of rigorous military experience. Situated between two of the most thriving ports in the country, Charleston and Savannah, our location is optimal as we can readily import key products that are essential for our business. Thank you, South Carolina, for your amazing welcome and for being so business friendly,’ said Mira International Foods, Inc. Owners Mark and Monica Awadalla.

“Mira’s decision to invest in the Lowcountry is a direct result of South Carolina’s commitment to investing in and expanding our ports. This $2 million investment will pay dividends for Beaufort County by bringing jobs and growth to an already thriving region,” Governor Henry McMaster noted.

Operating for more than 40 years, Mira crafts and distributes food, beverage and snack items to over 30,000 retailers in the United States. Some of the company’s best selling products include coconut waters, coconut milk, white and brown sugars, a line of sauces, tropical nectars and much more.

“SouthernCarolina Alliance welcomes Mira to the region, where the company will be an asset to our growing cluster of food and beverage industries. Congratulations to Beaufort County and the economic development team! Every good job created is an opportunity for a brighter future for a family in our region,” SouthernCarolina Regional Development Alliance Chairman Marty Sauls added.
