Food for the Nation
Already home to four food processing companies, including Amick Farms, the 11th largest meat manufacturing company in the world, the Aiken, Edgefield, and Saluda region has proven to be a welcoming place for food processing companies. The region’s existing workforce allows these companies to provide a variety of food products to the nation both now and into the future, and it will allow new companies to do the same.
Amick Farms produces a diverse line of fresh and frozen chicken products to meet the needs of foodservice, industrial, and retail customers. Valley Proteins collects and recycles inedible animal by-products from the food industry that would otherwise lead to environmental contamination. They serve restaurants, supermarkets, and poultry processing facilities throughout the Mid-Atlantic, eastern, and southwestern United States. Roya Foods produces convenience foods in the form of pre-packaged instant meals, and Gentry’s Poultry is a family owned poultry processing business that continues to bring great food to your table.
