October 3, 2007

A New York company specializing in natural and organic foods will build a national production and distribution site in Cambridge City in east-central Indiana.

Really Cool Foods will spend $100 million to build the location and hire 1,000 permanent employees over the scope of the project, according to the Indiana Economic Development Corp.

The location will be Really Cool Foods' primary national manufacturing and distribution center to supply North American customers. The company's products are distributed by Whole Foods and Kroger among other outlets.

An initial facility will have 77,000 square feet, with modules of 50,000 to 70,000 square feet to follow.

The company received $3.5 million in incentives, plus a donation from Wayne County of 50 acres. The project will locate in Indiana Gateway Industrial Park.
