Empire Specialty Cheese Co. LLC’s is planning to move into a vacant plant in Ashville, N.Y. with a proposed $6.37 million project.
Armed with incentives from Empire State Development Corp. and the Chautauqua County Industrial Development Agency, Empire Specialty Cheese has acquired the former AFA Food Inc. meat processing plant and will shift its operations there.
Empire Specialty Cheese, founded in 2000, produces ricotta and mozzarella cheese under private label contracts. By moving into the plant, the company will be able to add shredded cheese and cubed cheese lines.
