8th Avenue Food & Provisions, Inc. announced today plans to relocate its fruit and nut manufacturing plant from Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada, to North St. Louis County. The rapidly growing manufacturer of high-quality private label consumer products will open a 250,000-square-foot plant, bringing more than 300 new jobs to the St. Louis area. Interested candidates can apply online to pursue one of these career opportunities.

The company is owned in part by St. Louis-based Post Holdings, a Fortune 500 headquarters company that is also a founding Executive-level member of the Greater St. Louis, Inc. Chair’s Council, and produces customized, high-quality, private label products, including pasta, peanut butter, snack nuts, trail mix, granola and more, to retail, food service and ingredient customers. 8th Avenue has hundreds of supervisor and entry level jobs immediately available in a variety of fields.

“8th Avenue’s move to St. Louis is a big, big win for the St. Louis region and an important catalyst for North St. Louis County,” said Jason Hall, CEO, Greater St. Louis, Inc. “This investment in our region is an endorsement of our strategic location and talented workforce and a welcome addition to our region’s growing food sector.”
