Press release:

The Board of Directors of the Genesee County Economic Development Center (GCEDC) will consider an expansion project for Alpina Foods, Inc., at its May 5 board meeting.

Alpina Foods, Inc., is planning to construct a 3,200-square-foot addition to its existing facility in Batavia to accommodate space for a new bottle-filling machine and packaging equipment for a new drinkable yogurt product.

The company’s investment will total more than $1.1 million in the drinkable yogurt line, resulting in the retention of 23 current full-time employees.

The GCEDC Board meeting will take place at 4 p.m. and is open to the public. Meetings are held at the Innovation Zone Conference Room at MedTech Centre -- 99 MedTech Drive, Batavia, on the first floor, across from Genesee Community College.

23 current full time employees?? What happened to the 50 employees they were supposed to have in order to get the tax breaks?

apparently some people aren't aware there are clawbacks when the terms of tax breaks are not met.

Why doesn't Alpina just rent some space in the émpty' Müller Quaker building across the road?

why would they want to bottle and package a perishable product in a different facility than where the product made?

when you're canning tomatoes, do you prepare them in your kitchen then take them across to your neighbors house to seal them up in the jars?
