Hungry for more: Kentucky’s food and beverage industry continues to thrive
25 Jul 2022
After a record year in 2021 that saw Kentucky set all-time highs in investment and job growth, it is no surprise that many of the commonwealth’s major industries continue to thrive and build on its unprecedented momentum.
One of the key industries seeing consistent growth and success is the food and beverage sector, which since the start of Gov. Andy Beshear’s administration has announced more than 125 new-location and expansion projects totaling over $2.4 billion in investments while creating more than 3,300 full-time jobs. The state’s growing food, beverage and agritech industry includes more than 350 facilities and employs over 52,000 Kentucky residents.
