Calavo is Coming to Green Cove Springs and Will Provide 262 Jobs

Calavo, a company who processes avocados, has just announced plans to open a processing plan in Green Cove Springs. The company will be leasing a 208K SF distribution center, which was most recently used by Food Lion, prior to them exiting the marketplace. This is great news for Green Cove and Clay County, as the firm plans on providing 262 jobs locally. Because of the jobs being created, the company qualified for local incentive packages. The company is based in Santa Paula, CA and had over $782M in revenue in 2014.
