Lake Foods, LLC to add 130 full-time jobs to Hart County operation

By AccessWDUN Staff

A food processing company plans to expand in northeast Georgia's Hart County, opening up 130 full-time jobs.

Lake Foods, LLC already has a 62,000 square-foot facility in Hart County's Industrial Park, where the main hub of the business is located.
 
The Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD) made the announcement Thursday morning, saying that Lake Foods, LLC will invest $8 million in Hart County with the expansion. 

“We are pleased that Lake Foods has decided to grow their operations in Hart County,” said GDEcD Commissioner Pat Wilson in a press statement. “Georgia’s top-notch workforce and pro-business climate is the perfect complement to Lake Food’s commitment to the state. We look forward to supporting them in their continuous growth.”

Lake Foods, LLC currently operates a processing center, refrigerated inventory storage and main hub in Hart County. The company said it will process and introduce a variety of different products to the market and for its customers across the country.

“The Hartwell location has provided us with an eager and highly trainable workforce, and has proven to be an excellent location for our food processing business,” said co-owner of Lake Foods, David Strawn. “With assistance from both state and local resources, we have recently upgraded our wastewater pre-treatment system to accommodate growth, added new processing lines, and increased our presence in the business sector.”

The addition of 130 jobs more than doubles the company's current workforce in Hart County, according to company officials. 

Lake Foods is a privately owned company with the long term goal of becoming a large, nationally recognized preferred supplier.
