Meel Corp., a frozen food company, will create 24 new jobs in Granville County, Gov. Roy Cooper announced recently.
The company will invest $5.7 million to relocate a production facility in Oxford.
“We are glad to welcome Meel Corp to North Carolina,” Gov. Cooper said in a statement.. “Our state has the best business climate, the hardest working employees, the agricultural legacy, the central east coast location and the great quality of life that will make this company successful here.”
Headquartered in Miami, Meel supplies healthy frozen foods through its own brand and private labels. The family-owned business has sourced, developed, processed and packed organic and conventional fruits, vegetables, and frozen convenience products.
The company’s expansion to North Carolina will include a packing and cold storage facility and will continue to source some products from North Carolina.
