Italy-based Golfo di Napoli Dairy plans to build a new facility in in Huntington County.
The company will invest $9.5 million to establish a 3,000-sq.-ft. plant on a 40-acre site along Interstate-69 at Exit 278 in Warren. The investment will create up to 35 new jobs by 2021.
The plant will produce mozzarella, burrata, ricotta, provolone and other cheeses made using the pasta filata technique, which is traditionally used in the Naples region.
The company, which has already acquired the land, plans to begin construction in September once the appropriate permits are finalized.
The Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC) offered Golfo di Napoli Dairy as much as $300,000 in conditional tax credits based on the company’s job creation plans. These incentives are performance-based, meaning until Hoosiers are hired, the company is not eligible to claim incentives.
The Huntington County Board of Commissioners approved additional grant funding at the request of Huntington County Economic Development Corporation.
