Industrial journalist, TR Cutler recently discussed essential food manufacturing trends in the December issue of Manufacturing Outlook e-zine. Read the article here.
According to Cutler, food manufacturing, production, processing, and logistics are booming. Online consumer demand for food delivery during COVID has driven a dramatic increase in the food sector, but the sheer velocity of new and expanding food plants in the past several months portends huge growth in 2021 and beyond.
The size, geography, and scope of these projects indicate where 2021 food manufacturing is headed starting with Goya Foods which announced an $80 million expansion of its manufacturing and distribution facility in Brookshire, Texas.
Mount Franklin Foods opened its 220,000-sq.-ft. candy manufacturing facility in San Jeronimo, Chihuahua, Mexico, across the U.S. border from Santa Teresa, New Mexico, and the company’s headquarters in El Paso, Texas.
McCain Foods’ $300 million French fry expansion in Othello, Washington, resumed construction in early October after a pause due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Hershey Co. will invest $135 million to expand its candy manufacturing operation by 90,000 sq. ft. in Stuart’s Draft, Virginia.
Jacket Media is the parent company of Manufacturing Outlook e-zine. The publication highlights current manufacturing trends.
