Food Company's Haverhill Relocation to Provide 60 New Jobs
Mayor Calls Move Key Addition to City's Growing Food Manufacturing Cluster
Mayor James J. Fiorentini today announced that the Silver Spoon Food Company, a high-end prepared salads and foods manufacturer, has agreed to relocate to Haverhill, a move that will mean sixty more jobs for the city. Silver Spoon, which will purchase the old Gazette building on Lowell Avenue, plans to expand their current operation.
In making the announcement, Mayor Fiorentini called Silver Spoon a “significant addition to our food manufacturing cluster and a great opportunity for more jobs and more tax revenue for our community.”
As an incentive to attract Silver Spoon from its current location of Chelsea to Haverhill, the Mayor has agreed to recommend a small tax break called a “TIF”—Tax Increment Financing—for Silver Spoon.
The city of Haverhill has developed a significant cluster of food manufacturers and distributors. This cluster includes Cedar’s Mediterranean Foods, Hans Kissel, General Foods, and Joseph’s Pasta.
“Building upon our strength is a key part of our economic development strategy,” said Mayor Fiorentini. “One of our strengths is our growing food cluster. A key part of any good economic strategy is to build a cluster, and then continue to build that cluster.”
The Silver Spoon Food Company, currently located in Chelsea, is a producer of high quality salads and upscale fresh pizzas for the supermarket industry including Shaw’s Supermarkets, Trader Joes, and other chain stores.
