Vital Farms, a Certificated B Corporation with an offering of ethically produced food, has announced the expansion of Egg Central Station, its world-class egg washing and packing facility in Missouri.
The 150,000 square foot facility has almost doubled its size, allowing Vital Farms to continue growing the pasture-raised egg business and generate new ‘high-quality’ jobs. The company is expected to generate over $300 million in additional revenue.
“Like everything across our business, Egg Central Station is a reflection of how we make decisions to support the long-term sustainability of our stakeholders who include farmers and suppliers, crew members, customers and consumers, communities and the environment, and stockholders,” said Russell Diez-Canseco, President and CEO, Vital Farms. “It’s through this lens that we’ve created what I believe is the best food production facility in the country. We provide a work experience that’s rare for production, meaningfully investing in the health, safety, and financial well-being of our crew members. We’ve also thoughtfully designed the facility to conserve natural resources and spend time supporting the community around us.”
The new expansion will be LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Silver Certificate, using solar panels to reduce electricity and greenhouse gas emissions.
