Food Processing: A Recipe for Success

Food processors will find all the ingredients they need to succeed here in the I-74 Corridor. More than 80 percent of Indiana land is devoted to agriculture – putting all the grain, dairy, pork and beef, poultry and eggs food processors need just a short drive away.

There’s plenty of water here, too. Much of the corridor sits atop the Teays Aquifer system, which offers more than enough clean, high-quality water to meet the demands of food processors and beverage makers. Food processing and packaging are energy-intensive businesses. Throughout the corridor, these and other food-related industries enjoy abundant and affordable gas and electricity – well more than enough to meet their needs.

Food-related businesses locating here will find a regional, well-prepared workforce more than three million strong. Locally our high schools, technical training centers, and Ivy Tech College are producing workers with the skills the food industry needs.

Access to consumer markets is another key ingredient for success in the food industry. No matter where you are in the I-74 Corridor, you’ll find easy and fast access to more than 115 million hungry consumers within a day’s drive.
