Food Processing

The Jefferson County area’s communities and workforce are part of a strong manufacturing sector (non-durable goods manufacturing) that is skilled in food processing. There are five dairy processing plants, large meat processing operations and regional canning and bottling companies. The image above shows the emergence of “fresh market’ farms that are gaining in popularity as people recognize the value of eating fresh, locally grown food. This advantage may increase as energy costs for food transportation continue to rise.

Some notable companies in our area include: Jones Dairy, Johnsonville Sausages, Clasen Quality Coatings, and Tyranena Brewery.
