Food & Beverage Processing

Thinking of relocating? If your business is part of Virginia’s $25.2 billion food and beverage processing industry, you couldn’t hope for a site that is better connected and more centralized than Newport News — that’s why leading companies like the Pepsi Bottling Company, Marva Maid and High Liner Foods are located here. Need employees? Our nationally recognized education system keeps local businesses supplied with skilled workers, who also come from among the ranks of veterans exiting the military. Want easy access? With six major interstate highways, an extensive railroad network, three international airports and the deep-water Port of Virginia, the Newport News food and beverage processing industry is in close contact with the world.
