Food Manufacturing

Food manufacturing has a long, successful heritage in eastern and southern Ohio. The region boasts some of the largest food manufacturing facilities in the United States and has a concentration of food processing workforce 81 percent above the national average. Smaller, specialized food manufactures also dot the region and are major employers. 

Abundant transportation options traverse eastern and southern Ohio to move raw materials and finished goods to market. Four-lane highways, multiple class 1 and short line railroads and Ohio River access is available across the region. OhioSE is a one-day drive to half of the US and Canadian populations. 

“We chose Ohio for the expansion due to the reliable workforce that exists in Holmes County and its surrounding areas and the growing customer demand to expand our presence in Ohio. Case Farms is very excited to help create more jobs within the great state of Ohio and are very appreciative of the support from the JobsOhio-OhioSE team and the governments and communities in Winesburg, Holmes County and other surrounding areas. Without them, this project would not have been possible.” 

Mike Popowycz: Vice Chairman and CFO, Case Farms
