Empire State Development says the company will invest nearly $100 million and build a 500,000-square-foot organic food manufacturing plant with nearly 700 new jobs.
The company is expected to break ground early next year and open by the end of 2016.

Empire State Development has agreed to provide Amy's Kitchen with up to $6.8 million in performance-based incentives tied to investment and job creation commitments. The company will also receive tax incentives from Orange County.
