A food processing company based in Ontario County is expanding and adding jobs.

Assured Edge Solutions, a vegetable processing and co-packing company which is located at the Cornell Agriculture and Food Technology Park in Geneva will move from its current location on that campus to a new building. ( A co-packer is a company that manufactures and packages foods or other products for their clients).

The company says that will allow Assured Edge to create up to 21 jobs. 14 other jobs will be retained.

Assured Edge Solutions was founded in 2012, and produces custom ingredients and does co-packing for a variety of customers. The company says it also does co-packing of organic frozen vegetables for a major local retailer.

The company has been running its manufacturing operation at the Technology Park in Geneva since 2017.

Empire State Development is helping with the new expansion with up to $150,000 through the Excelsior Tax Credit Program. Ontario County and Greater Rochester Enterprise also collaborated on the project.
