CHEEKTOWAGA – Cheektowaga based Rosina Food Product, Inc. has been awarded a regional economic development grant to help fund a Protein Operation Expansion.

The Western New York Regional Economic Development Council awarded the company $2,000,000 as part of the state’s Regional Council initiative.

Rosina is investing $32 million into the project which includes building a new 120,000 square foot plant and production line for manufacturing a variety of meat product in West Seneca.

The new building will allow the company to relocate production from out-of-state and will double the company’s current production capacity.

This is the first phase of a potentially multi-phased master plan to retain Rosina Food in Western New York according to a state press release.

New York State announced this past June that it had awarded Rosina with $5 million in Empire State Development Corporation incentives as part of the company’s $22.7 million expansion.  The project allowed for the company to put a high-speed pasta production line online in 2014 and to build a $2.4 million customer focus center.

Rosina supports almost 400 manufacturing jobs and 100 sales and administrative jobs at their French Road and Gardenville Parkway complexes.
