SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — One of South Korea’s largest food companies is building a production facility in Sioux Falls.
The company, known as CJCJ, plans to set up an Asian food production facility that is expected to employ 600 people within five years. The food will be sold and distributed by CJ Foods and Schwan’s Company, the Minnesota-based frozen food distributor that was purchased by CJCJ in 2018.
Governor Kristi Noem has made attracting businesses to South Dakota a priority and touted the announcement as an opportunity for job growth.
