Food for the Nation
Already home to four food processing companies, including Amick Farms, the 11th largest meat manufacturing company in the world, our 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.
