The city of Brundidge is adding Magnolia Vegetable Processors, another food processing company to the area. The company is set to process a variety of pickled and salsa products for retail sales. It will also add 80 jobs in Brundidge.
“Anytime that you can offer employment to citizens to your community and to other surrounding areas thats important to us,” says City Manager Britt Thomas.
With the help of a $250,000 community development block grant the city will provide sewage and water for the company, thats also affiliated with Southern Classic Food Group-which is currently expanding its own facility.
“We’ll be creating more of a tax base for them so obviously from their side they’re encouraged that we’re growing and doing things in town,” says Chuck Caraway of Southern Classic Food Group.
Magnolia Vegetable Processors’ location will be across from Southern Classic Food Group.
“The city has also been awarded $472,000 by the Alabama Department of Transportation to extend an industrial access road to this project site.
Expansion and more opportunities that city leaders say they are excited for.
Once the construction for Magnolia Vegetable Processors begins as well as the industrial access road, its estimated that completion will be this summer.
