Food Processing

Greenwood, South Carolina became home to its first food processing industry in 1920, when Carolina Pride began offering packaged meat products. In 2007, Diana Pet Food –a pet food palatability company–opened their headquarters in Greenwood and has experienced successful growth and expansion since then. As acknowledgment for part of that success, Greenwood received the Award of Excellence in Food Processing by Expansion Solutions magazine in 2015. No matter what your final product is, Greenwood has the workforce and infrastructure in place to make sure your processing facility is a success.
