BUFFALO, N.Y. — State and local lawmakers helped Rosina Food Products cut the ribbon on the company's new $73 million food manufacturing plant.
The event on Thursday happened on Clinton Street in West Seneca.
The food manufacturer is adding this 105,000-square-foot facility as a way to increase its output while retaining 500 jobs and creating 40 new ones. It features a high-speed production line that can produce up to 50 million pounds of items, such as frozen meatballs and sausage, each year.
"Our family will remain committed to this community, they will remain committed to this company, and we will continue to reinvest, and we will continue to grow in Western New York, and we will continue to be a corporate citizen, and we will continue to be what we consider a great employer," Russell Corigliano, the president and CEO of Rosina Food Products, said on Thursday.
Rosina said the company will also continue its emphasis on buying raw materials from producers as close to its facility as possible.
