Food processors grow jobs while expanding in Cumberland County
TRENTON, N. J. — The local workforce, as well as certain incentives meant to lure business, has helped executives at Allied Specialty Foods, Safeway and Bridor choose Cumberland County as a good location for their facilities. The added benefit to the local economy is made greater due to additional hiring.
Bridor, Inc., a leading manufacturer of authentic European breads and Viennese pastry for the retail and food service industry, is investing $32 million to expand an existing 136,000-square-foot facility to 183,000 square feet in Cumberland County. The company will grow its employee count from 132 to 177.
Also in Cumberland County, Allied Specialty Foods, a restaurant and retail food supplier, is taking advantage of an incentive program called GROW New Jersey to secure the financing necessary to carry out its 10-year plan to relocate and expand.
