Spain's Pata Negra to open plant in New York


Spain's Pata Negra, which is owned by European firm Pata Negra Jan, S.L., plans to operate a 23,000 square-foot plant in Gloversville, NY.


This was according to the Fulton County Centre for Regional Growth.


The start-up company owned by Spanish food products entrepreneurs will produce cured meats using US and imported pork. The company will focus initially on producing chorizo for sale to restaurants, retailers and specialty food distributors throughout the Northeast. The facility is being renovated to create drying rooms and expects to employ 12 people.


"This location provides us with right location and the water, sewer, warehousing, transportation access, and employment resources we need to be successful," said Ignacio Rodriguez Saez de Ibarra, general manager of Pata Negra. "We are very pleased with the support we have received from the county and local business community and look forward to starting operations this spring."


"We are very pleased to welcome Pata Negra to our growing cluster of food processing companies," said Michael Reese, president and CEO of the Fulton County Centre for Regional Growth. "CRG worked closely with the company over the last year to identify a location for their production facility and arrange financing for the building's purchase, renovation and equipment."
