La Regina Atlantica is an Italian company specializing in pasta and sauces. Now, they are planning to soon open their first US-based location. After weighing all of their options, they have decided, without a doubt, that Alma, Georgia is the perfect place. Here, the focus will be on sourcing ingredients for their especially amazing sauces.
So the investment will go toward buying a 226,000-square-foot building to collect and produce ingredients. As a result of this, they also plan to create about 250 new jobs for the area.
From Area Development Magazine:
“I’m confident that La Regina Atlantica will find success in Georgia. […] Their decision to bring their operations to the Peach State is a testament to the fastest-growing port in the U.S., the Port of Savannah, our outstanding workforce training programs provided by Georgia Quick Start, and our pro-business environment. We’re grateful for their investment in our state. [We] look forward to seeing the opportunities this creates for the hardworking Georgians in Bacon County and the surrounding region.”
“We are proud to be part of the state and local economic development team in support of [the] expansion. […] Their announcement is one more example of how Georgia’s deep-water ports support jobs and economic opportunity across every region of the state.”AREA DEVELOPMENT MAGAZINE
