All Fresh Farms to employ 200 in Greene Township, Pa., invest $3.4 million
Based in Florida, All Fresh Farms is an indoor hydroponic production and packaging operation that specializes in growing lettuce mixes, kales, and basil.
All Fresh Farms has purchased a 50,000-square-foot facility on 10 acres located at 115 Mozzette Road in Greene Township, Pennsylvania.
The company plans to invest more than $3.4 million at the new site, with plans to double the size of the facility within the first five years of operation. In addition, All Fresh Farms has also pledged to create at least 200 new jobs over the next three years.
The company received a funding proposal from the Department of Community and Economic Development including a $400,000 Pennsylvania First Program grant, a $90,000 WEDnetPA grant, and $400,000 in Job Creation Tax Credits.
All Fresh Farms was also encouraged to apply for a $500,000 First Industries Fund loan, administered through the Commonwealth Financing Authority, for machinery and equipment used in vegetable production and processing.
The project was coordinated by the Governor Tom Wolf's Action Team, an experienced group of economic development professionals who report directly to the Governor and work with businesses that are considering locating or expanding in Pennsylvania, in collaboration with the Pike County Economic Development Authority. ■
