A company that makes freeze-dried foods for the military will expand operations into Henrietta.
According Governor Andrew Cuomo, OFD Foods will expand for the first time in New York, building a 50,000 square-foot facility at 1000 Rush Henrietta Town Line Road.
The new facility will employ 30 full-time workers. Empire State Development will provide up to $400,000 in grants for construction.
"OFD Foods' expansion will help further strengthen this region's manufacturing sector and continue to build on the Finger Lakes' economic momentum," Governor Cuomo said in a release. "With the addition of this new facility, we look forward to the company's continued success in the global foods market, creation of new jobs in Monroe County, and increased economic activity throughout the region to continue moving the Finger Lakes forward."
County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo added: "I am proud to welcome OFD Foods to Monroe County. With the creation of 30 full-time jobs in the first phase of the project, Monroe County continues its commitment in partnering with private businesses to create jobs and grow our economy."
Crews will break ground on the facility in April and it will be completed by June 2018, the governor's office says.
