A $9.2 million initiative is bringing a food specialization center to Bridgeton, N.J. The facility will include industrial food processing space, freezer and cold storage, warehousing and loading docks, as well as space for marketing and sales support.

The U.S. Economic Development Administration awarded a $2.5 million grant for the Cumberland County Improvement Authority to build the 31,000 ft2 center. Located adjacent to the Rutgers Food Innovation Center, it is expected to create 190 jobs and resources for new food production companies.
