Greenleaf Foods to Invest $310M for Manufacturing Plant in Shelbyville, Indiana

SHELBYVILLE, IND. — Greenleaf Foods SPC has selected Shelbyville as the location for a new plant-based protein foods production facility. The company says it will invest $310 million in the new plant and create as many as 460 jobs by the end of 2022. The 230,000-square-foot facility will double Greenleaf’s production capacity. Greenleaf has not yet selected a general contractor for the build-to-suit project. Incentives from the city and Shelby County totaled $2.5 million. The state offered up to $5 million in conditional tax credits and as much as $1 million in training grants based on job creation plans. The state also offered up to $1.25 million from the Industrial Development Grant Fund.

Greenleaf makes foods under the Lightlife Foods and Field Roast Grain Meat Co. brands. The company is a wholly owned subsidiary of Toronto-based Maple Leaf Foods Inc. Established in 2018, Greenleaf is headquartered in Chicago and currently operates facilities in Seattle and Turner Falls, Mass.
