As 2022 draws to a close, we’re celebrating a record-breaking year at Missouri Partnership by taking a look back at some of Missouri’s biggest stories in economic development from the past year. Today, we are highlighting Ostara’s expansion in St. Louis, Missouri.
In September, Ostara St. Louis, Ltd., an agtech company, broke ground on a new $17 million Crystal Green® fertilizer production facility in St. Louis.
“We’re excited to welcome another agtech company to Missouri, where agriculture remains our number one economic driver,” said Missouri Governor Mike Parson, when the project was first announced in 2021. “Ostara’s investment in St. Louis will create more career opportunities for Missourians, build on its mission to help farmers improve crop yields across North America, and protect water and soil quality around the globe.”
The new facility is expected to create 40 new jobs in the region.
“Missouri is the global leader in agtech, and we are thrilled to welcome Ostara to the Missouri family,” said Subash Alias, CEO of Missouri Partnership. “Their innovation is a strategic addition to our robust agtech ecosystem, and we are delighted they will be creating 40 new jobs that will positively impact Missouri families.”
