FRESNO, Calif. — The city of Fresno, Calif., recently launched a new website dedicated to food processing companies and companies serving the food processing industry that are looking to expand or locate in Fresno.

The website, www.fresnofood.org, offers all of the logistical information food processing companies will be looking for, including the cost for sewer, wastewater and electricity. In addition, it offers information about the area’s workforce, labor wages, the cost of living and educational institutions that offer training programs geared toward the food processing industry.

“Fresno is the best place for food-related businesses to start, expand or locate in Fresno, and this new website will help us tell the world about what we have to offer,” Mayor Ashley Swearengin said.
