As 2022 draws to a close, we’re celebrating a record-breaking year at Missouri Partnership by taking a look back at some of Missouri’s biggest stories in economic development from the past year. Today, we are highlighting Deli Star’s investment in St. Louis, Missouri.
In February, Deli Star Corporation, a family-owned manufacturer of prepared meal proteins and deli solutions, cut the ribbon on its new $99 million headquarters in St. Louis.
“We are excited to welcome Deli Star Corporation to Missouri,” Governor Mike Parson said. “Deli Star will bring nearly $100 million in investment to our state and create nearly 500 new jobs in the St. Louis region. Missouri is a great place for food sector companies like Deli Star to find success, and we look forward to seeing this company grow in our state and provide new opportunities for Missourians.”
The new facility will bring 475 jobs to Missouri.
“We were very fortunate to work with our economic development partners to help bring Deli Star to Missouri, and keep it in the greater St. Louis region,” Missouri Partnership CEO Subash Alias said. “Deli Star was approached by numerous states and communities as it began looking for a location to rebuild its headquarters. The fact that we were able to keep it in the region is a testament to the strengths of both our workforce, and our overall business climate. We have had a lot of interest by food processing companies here in Missouri. I look forward to seeing Deli Star Corporation thrive here in our state.”
