Creative Food Ingredients, Inc. produces and sells baked ingredient products to the prepared dessert, confectionery, ice cream, and nutritional bar industries. The company was founded in 2005 and is based in Perry, New York at the previous Archway Cookie location. CFI employs 130 people at their tree nut and peanut-free manufacturing facility in Perry and another 20 people at their administrative offices and distribution center in Mississauga, Ontario.
CFI Properties, Inc. has constructed a 50,000 square foot addition to its existing facility. The expansion allows the company to connect the two buildings it previously worked out of in order to make production flow more efficiently. The addition also provides increased storage for raw materials, a wash area, and warehouse / load out space for finished product. The business previously had130 employees in the county and expects to create 80 additional full-time jobs over the next 3 years. The Company requested a PILOT agreement for temporary abatement of property tax and abatement of sales tax on construction materials and non-production equipment. Approximate value of these incentives was more than $100,000; therefore a public hearing was necessary. Total incentives proposed, over a ten year period, are estimated to be $533,600.
