Food Solutions

Missouri’s robust food production sector includes nearly 400 companies, with the capacity for many more, due to Missouri’s leading role in agricultural products including rice, soybeans, corn, sorghum, cattle, turkeys, and hogs.

Missouri is home to 130+ wineries, 80+ breweries, 20+ distilleries and the world-famous Budweiser family of beers. And Missouri’s agriculture industry contributes $33 billion in GDP to Missouri’s economy, and generates $88 billion in sales and more than 378,000 jobs.

Missouri gives your company rapid access to global markets, extensive distribution options, a friendly regulatory environment and access to a diverse customer base.

And pet food companies with their North American headquarters in Missouri generate almost $30 billion in revenue each year.

In Their Words

The decision to build our second milk plant in Columbia culminates several years of research and diligence to determine the optimal location for a new processing operation. Columbia was the best choice because it offers a location that expands and improves the efficiency of our total supply chain, from organic feed, to milk, to consumer. Central Missouri also offers a great workforce and attractive access to major interstate highways. We are excited to break ground on our new facility later this spring.

— Marc Peperzak / Aurora Organic Dairy

Our supply chain and manufacturing facilities are also located in the Midwest. Housing our corporate offices in St. Louis will allow Solid Gold Pet to centralize our support for our customers and vendors, which means increased efficiency and productivity.
