Farmer Direct Foods has broken ground on a $2.2 million dollar Facility Expansion and Modernization Project that will increase the production capacity and efficiency of its operation. The groundbreaking ceremony, which took place on Wednesday, May 10th, was attended by Farmer Direct Foods executives, employees, customers, local officials, and members of the community.
This investment will allow Farmer Direct Foods to increase operational efficiency, expand capacity, and broaden capabilities to better serve our customers and meet growing demand for climate-friendly flour and other grain-based products.
The expansion project includes a new warehouse addition and the installation of a modern, automated packaging line to improve operational flexibility, consistency, and production capacity. The expanded warehouse will increase our capacity to serve existing customer demand and allow for future capacity increases. The new packaging line will allow for faster, more efficient production of both 25 and 50-pound bags.
