Salem, MA (PRWEB) March 11, 2013
Green Mountain, Co-Pack, Vermont's boutique-style specialty food and beverage manufacture, has built a new, 20,000-square-foot state-of-the-art production facility in Williston, VT and is joining forces with Thirsty Ventures, Inc., parent company of Powell & Mahoney, Ltd. to increase output, reduce turnaround times and enhance the already high quality GMCP is known for.
“We see exciting things in the future,” said GMCP founder Jeff Mitchell. “It is great to see the company grow, but I am also excited about tasting all the excellent new, natural foods and beverages we will be able to produce.”
“This move will allow GMCP to provide a wider array of offerings, without diminishing the commitment to quality that got the company where it is today,” said Thirsty Ventures President Mark Mahoney.
“Green Mountain Co-Pack is very fortunate to be located in Vermont, a state that supports small businesses and has helped us build this great company,” added Mitchell. “I look forward to adding players to our team and watching GMCP’s evolution into its full potential.”
What’s new? As GMCP settles into its new facility, the company will quadruple its workforce from five employees to 20. The new location will have two independent production lines, allowing GMCP to offer a broad diversity of products, and most importantly, increase output 20-fold. The new state-of-the-art cooling system will ensure consistent, accurate and high-quality products, every time, regardless of fill temperature or batch size.
Though GMCP expects to expand significantly in the coming years, it will continue to produce in small, craft-batched kettles, allowing for thoughtfully blended ingredients and unwavering attention to quality.
GMCP’s new production lines will also offer a stepping stone for smaller, craft producers looking to expand their geographic reach.
Experts are available to consult clients on commercial recipe development and production of organic, all-natural and conventional drinks, sauces, condiments, beverages and other foods. In fact, between Mitchell, Mahoney and other senior staff, GMCP offers its clients more than 70 years experience in specialty food development.
GMCP’s new facility can produce everything, from small-scale local orders, to large-production truckloads for sophisticated branded and private label projects. GMCP will also provide cost-effective shipping throughout the continental United States and to export ports in New York and New Jersey.
For more than seven years, Green Mountain Co-Pack has delivered quality for its clients, and the new partnership will provide tremendous growth potential. Mitchell is proficient in all disciplines of manufacturing, procurement, food and safety, and regulations concerning food and beverage facilities.
Vermont has a long-standing reputation beyond the geographical boundaries of New England for producing high quality, all-natural specialty foods and beverages. Vermont continues to be at the forefront of the natural food and beverage movement, which accounts for more than $1.2 billion in positive economic impact for the state each year.
