Earlier this year, Missouri Partnership CEO, Subash Alias, sat down with Expansion Solutions Magazine to discuss the enduring strength of the food processing sector, projected to hit $235.67 billion by 2028.

While food is naturally a crisis-proof industry, food manufacturers and distributors in growth-mode are seeking efficiencies and solutions to combat peripheral economic challenges. These unique circumstances have created an opportunity for Missouri to shine as a state that can offer solutions to nationwide supply chain, workforce, and inflation challenges in recent years. Despite the pandemic, Missouri welcomed investments exceeding $1 billion in the food and beverage industry throughout the state.

Alias notes Missouri’s access to protein, central location, and thriving plant sciences sector that is addressing the challenge of feeding a growing population in a harsh climate. He also noted the trend of geospatial technology becoming part of the industry’s core.
