Right to Work Virginia’s economy is on the rise as a result of its Right to Work laws. And Southern Virginia Vegetable Packing is yet another example of this. The company is investing $4.2 million in order to add a new facility in Brunswick County, Virginia. This will also create 40 new jobs! So this is exciting news for the area!
From Area Development Magazine:
“Access to a facility that provides efficient packing, cooling, and distribution of vegetables for local farmers will create access to markets previously unavailable to them. […] This was the key component farmers were lacking to capitalize on the land, equipment, labor, and farming experience they already possess.” […]
“As the Commonwealth’s largest and oldest industry, agriculture is an integral part of Virginia’s economic well being, especially in rural areas. […] I commend the members of Southern Virginia Vegetable Packing and all of the public and private sector partners who have made this project a reality. They have set an example for how we can all work together to support Virginia agriculture and the communities that rely on this important industry.” […]
“Embracing innovation and exploring new opportunities in agriculture is key to the growth and prosperity of rural communities. […] I am pleased that Brunswick County’s first Governor’s Agriculture and Forestry Industries Development award is being used to partner with Southern Virginia Vegetable Packing to create new markets and support local farmers and producers with creative ways to maintain and grow their farming operations.”AREA DEVELOPMENT MAGAZINE
