The $2 million capital investment will include new manufacturing equipment and 11 new jobs. The project, which should be completed by the summer of 2021, could have a $385,000 impact on area schools over the next 10 years.
Moody Mayor Joe Lee said he is happy to see J&M Exotic Foods has grown enough to expand its facility.
President of J&M Exotic Foods, Inc., Jeff Johnston, said he is thankful for the support from St. Clair County and the city of Moody.
“We appreciate our community and proudly call Moody home,” said Johnston.
