Area Profile
The Youngstown-Warren metro area provides a full range of services to companies in the food
processing industry. From the abundance of raw materials—more than 150 grain and 130 dairy
cattle and milk production farms—to award-winning container manufacturers and innovative
food production lines to a well-connected transportation network that quickly transfers products from warehouse to consumer.
Recent highlights and investments of food processors, supply manufacturers and distributors in
the area include:


received awards for its bottling design. The company produces more than 470 million containers annually for major companies like Anheuser-Busch, Coca-Cola and GlaxoSmithKline.

renowned chefs Guy Fieri and Mario Batali.
