Howard County-based Taylor Farms will add 150 jobs to expand its produce packaging and distribution operations.
The company, which grows and packages salad mixes and healthy snacks, has had manufacturing operations in Annapolis Junction since 2004 and employs nearly 500 workers in the state.
"It's gratifying to see Taylor Farms' owners continue to grow the food distribution industry here in Howard County," Howard County Executive Allan H. Kittleman said in a statement. "Like many of their industry peers, they have recognized Howard County and the Rt. 1 corridor as a prime location for their distribution services and have decided to reinvest and expand their business in Annapolis Junction."
Taylor Farms' plan to hire more workers makes it eligible for the Maryland Job Creation Tax Credit and other tax credits.
The company was founded in 1995 in California and has 13 facilities across the country.
