Food and Beverage
The intersection between biological science and the food and beverage industry has been a seminal success story for Cabarrus County. The North Carolina Research Campus has been instrumental in attracting the industry, as well as the highly-skilled labor force required to conduct food science and technology applications.
As a result, Cabarrus County is able to combine the logistical base and the skilled workforce food and beverage firms need. In addition to food and beverage distributors, Cabarrus County has attracted a significant number of firms in specialty food processing including S&D Coffee, Dole Foods, PreGel America, General Mills and Monsanto.
