GREENWOOD — Officials from a California-based food processing company broke ground on a new $11 million manufacturing facility in Greenwood on Tuesday.
California Custom Fruits and Flavors Inc. develops and manufactures custom value-added fruit and flavor ingredients for the dairy, bakery, beverage and food service industries.
The company, based in the Los Angeles area, is investing $11 million to construct, equip and furnish a 65,000 square foot manufacturing facility. The new location will allow the company to increase its production capacity of processed fruit for yogurt, bakery fillings and other foods and will also place the company in closer proximity to its Midwest clients.
The company employs just under 100 people at its West Coast headquarters and manufacturing facility and plans to create up to 24 new full-time positions in Greenwood by 2023.
The company will be hiring for a manager, factory lead, sanitation worker, quality control associate, administrative associate, manufacturing associates and material handlers.
