Food Solutions Company Announces New Packaging Facility in St. Louis, Missouri

8th Avenue Food & Provisions Inc., a maker of fruit, nuts, and pasta products, recently announced plans to build a new packaging plant in St. Louis, Missouri.

The new 250,000 square foot plant will prep and package snack nuts, trail mix and dried fruit for retail, food service and ingredient customers, and is expected to create more than 300 new jobs in the region.

“This investment in our region is an endorsement of our strategic location and talented workforce and a welcome addition to our region’s growing food sector,” said Jason Hall, CEO of Greater St. Louis Inc.

Missouri gives food producers rapid access to global markets, extensive distribution options, a friendly regulatory environment, and a diverse customer base. This has led to a surge of companies announcing new investment in the state.
