A strong appetite for food processing companies

Fayetteville and Cumberland County are located in the food processing and distribution “sweet spot,” between New York and Atlanta, and within a day’s drive of 170 million hungry consumers. That means you can get your product to market faster and with less cost.

Our area’s resources (including an abundance of water and electricity) makes us ideal for food processing, pet food, soybean and corn processors, and crushing facilities for food oils. Extensive agriculture also gives us resources for frozen food products, packaged food, and biotech companies.

Just as important, we have a highly skilled workforce with a high number of degrees in STEM disciplines such as Computer & Information Sciences, and residents who have deep experience, the skills that food processing companies need, and the kind of serious work ethic that made North Carolina a right-to-work state.
