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 Verde Resources’ expansion in La Belle, Missouri.
In February, Verde Resources, Inc., a commercial producer and wholesaler of regenerative compost, announced plans to establish a $5.6 million processing and packaging facility in La Belle.
“Our state is a leader in the growing agricultural technology sector, and we’re thrilled to see innovative companies like Verde Resources investing in Missouri,” said Governor Mike Parson. “This company’s expansion will enhance our critically important agriculture industry while creating quality jobs in our rural north region. Verde Resources is a welcome addition to a growing list of cutting-edge agtech companies who see Missouri as a prime location for growth.”
The new investment is expected to create 32 new jobs.
“We are very excited about the future of La Belle, Missouri. Verde will be the go-to green company in the Midwest for forward thinking soil and climate solutions,” said Carl Craven, Director of Verde Resources. “We can make an immediate impact on the local farming industries, addressing several factors affecting the soil and environment. Processing biochar and regenerative compost will tackle the dairy industry’s waste issues while addressing the world’s emissions problems.”
