GREENWOOD -

Los Angeles area-based California Custom Fruits and Flavors Inc. has announced plans to establish its first Midwest manufacturing operations in Greenwood. The food processing company says the new facility will create up to 24 full-time positions in Indiana by 2023.

California Custom Fruits and Flavors Inc. develops and manufactures custom fruit and flavor ingredients for the dairy, bakery, beverage and food service industries. The company plans to invest more than $11 million to construct, equip and furnish a 65,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in the Greenwood Park at 65 South.

The new facility will allow California Custom Fruits and Flavors to up its production capacity of processed fruit for yogurt, bakery fillings and other foods and will also place the company closer to its Midwest clients..

The company will be hiring for a manager, factory lead, sanitation worker, quality control associate, administrative associate, manufacturing associates and material handlers. 

The Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered California Custom Fruits and Flavors Inc. up to $160,000 in conditional tax credits based on the company's job creation plans.

“We’re thrilled to welcome California Custom Fruits and Flavors to the Hoosier state,” said Lieutenant Governor Suzanne Crouch, Indiana Secretary of Agriculture and Rural Development, in a news release. “Our state’s business-friendly atmosphere and diverse agriculture industry, combined with a sophisticated transportation network, makes Indiana an excellent destination for their first Midwest operation.”

Construction is slated to start June 1, and the new facility is expected to be fully operational by the first quarter of next year.
