Food Processing

Central The Central Pennsylvania region provides fertile ground for the food processing industry.  Additionally, our close proximity to the majority of the nation’s population and seaports makes Central PA a smart choice for food manufacturing.  Other successful companies such as Kellogg’s, Frito-Lay, Del Monte, Conagra, Furmano Foods and Asher’s Chocolates have found a dependable workforce and a supportive community. Central Pennsylvania has many sources of organic goods as well as support for sustainable practices.
