Establishment of New Production Facilities for Food Processing and Food Packaging Manufacturing in the USA
When demands of new markets reach high volumes, it is worthy to consider establishing production facilities closer to the target markets. There is a point at which the cost of logistics and compliance of phytosanitary standards in foreign countries reach a level that make it worth establishing new processing operations in the US. The US today offers unparalleled opportunities in aspects such as cost of fuel, cost of electricity, states with absence of union regulations, low cost of financing, safe commercial environment, stable legislation and income-tax free operations. At ADEM we have the experience of having assisted companies attain extensive benefits and tax credits that have represented savings in investments in the tens of millions of dollars for foreign investors. Our network of contacts and relationships with authorities in the US, (both state and federal) have allowed us to develop profitable negotiations for foreign processors that have established their new operations in the US. Lower cost of investment in addition to lower cost of operations added to the advantages that free trade agreements in place with multiple nations in the Americas present, allow US products to be exported more freely and less expensive, allowing better competitive advantage even in their countries of origin.
