Business Facilities magazine recently ranked Oswego County ninth in the top 10 food processing leaders across the U.S. in its 16th Annual Rankings Report.
The rankings were based on “employment, announced projects and recent expansions, among other criteria.”
Oswego County is home to Fresh Food Products (Champlain Valley Specialty), K&Ns Foods USA., Tet Bakery and iFreeze and other related companies.
Business Facilities is a national site selection magazine which provides monthly news and resource information for more than 40,000 corporate executives responsible for the expansion or relocation of their companies. Business Facilities is based in Tinton Falls, New Jersey.
“To be included in this group of the highest caliber locations for food processing in the country is an honor and truly speaks to the viability of Oswego County as an exceptional place to locate a business,” said L. Michael Treadwell, executive director of Operation Oswego County.
“This recognition would not have been possible without the vast network of transportation and logistics capabilities that we have in Oswego County and Central New York. Very few locations can boast of having a deep water port, multiple interstate highways, excellent U.S. state and county highway systems, a county airport and a nearby international airport, a state canal system and rail service. Oswego County also has the available industrial labor-force, infrastructure, and supply chain for growth in the food manufacturing sector. Plus, Oswego County is strategically positioned to be a hub for the Northeast U.S. and Canada from Toronto to Montreal.”
