Greenleaf Foods Plans $310M Plant in Indiana

Elmhurst, IL-based Greenleaf Foods SPC plans to build a $310-million production facility on a 57-acre site in Shelbyville, IN, roughly 20 miles southeast of Indianapolis. The company, which makes plant-based burgers, sausages and other vegetarian meat alternatives, says there’s a rapidly-growing demand for protein alternatives in North American markets.

The site near the intersection of Interstate 74 and State Road 44 is expected to begin operations at a 230,000-square-foot plant in late 2020. Construction is anticipated to launch later this spring, and be fully operational in 2021.

The company, which is a subsidiary of Maple Leaf Foods Inc., indicated the Shelbyville site was selected because it made sense from a logistics standpoint, as well as land and local labor force availabilities.

The plant, which will produce 60 million pounds of products annually, would be North America’s largest plant-based protein facility. The company is set to receive roughly $50 million in state, utility and local grants and incentives for the plant.
