Vital Farms, the largest brand of pasture-raised eggs in the U.S., is expanding in Springfield, Missouri. Dubbed “Egg Central Station,” the company’s 84,000 sq. ft. facility currently employs nearly 100 workers. The expansion will add 64,000 sq. ft. of space and more than 50 full-time jobs to the region.
“We’ve worked hard to build a business climate in Missouri that will help growing businesses like Vital Farms succeed,” said Missouri Governor Mike Parson. “This expansion is just another example that our state is a prime location for food and ag-related companies.”
Expanding its egg processing facility will enable Vital Farms to continue to meet strong consumer demand for quality foods raised with high animal welfare standards. Vital Farms cut the ribbon on its Springfield facility in 2017.
“The strong partnerships we’ve found in Springfield have made it the perfect place for Egg Central Station,” said Russell Diez- Canseco, President and CEO of Vital Farms.” Springfield’s Partnership for Economic Development has been outstanding across all aspects of our business and made our expansion in Springfield an easy choice.”
