Pasta company to open facility in Forest City
FOREST CITY, NC (AP) — A California company that makes international foods that include organic and gluten-free varieties will open its new East Coast manufacturing operation in Forest City, creating more than 300 jobs over the next three years.
Gov. Beverly Perdue said Friday that Valley Fine Foods will open the facility in the Rutherford County city. Valley Fine is based near Napa Valley, Calif., and makes gourmet pasta dishes, including fresh ravioli, tortellini and gnocchi. The business began in 1984.
The company received a grant for locating in North Carolina. The grant could yield almost $3 million in maximum benefits if the company meets the targets stated in the grant and sustains them for 10 years.
