Canada-based Indian snack food manufacturer Surati Sweet Mart has established its first manufacturing and distributing site for specialty snacks and baked foods in the United States.
Surati has announced the investment of $16 million in the new 240,000-square-foot facility which generates over 100 new jobs.
“Our location in Springfield would be our first manufacturing investment in the United States and will allow us to serve our North American growth,” said the director of operations for Surati, Shalini Sheth. “The Springfield community is the perfect strategic location for us to locate and expand our operations. It’s simply a community that wants our investment and has worked with our leadership to make it happen.”
Founded in 1942 and headquartered in Toronto, Surati has a portfolio of 400 products including cookies, snacks, biscuits, frozen snacks, frozen flatbread, frozen vegetables, pickles, and sweets sold under the Surati, Shalini, and Golden brands.
