Taylor Farms, a produce manufacturing and distribution company, is growing its footprint in Maryland.
Food company Taylor began as one facility with seven employees
“Taylor Farms Maryland’s mission is to be America’s favorite maker of salads and fresh foods. We strive to be a leader in innovation, service, quality, and food safety,” said Mike George, general manager of Taylor Farms.
Formed in 1995, Taylor Farms began as one facility with seven employees in Salinas Valley, California. Since then, the company has grown to operate 13 facilities across North America that produce seven billion servings of fresh vegetables annually, feeding more than 120 million Americans per week.
The fresh produce manufacturer says they prepare every one in three salads consumed in the United States. The company is also focused on caring for its employees and recognizing their hard work through employee appreciation days, bonuses, and awards.
As a result of their expansion, the company is eligible for a number of state and local tax credits, including Maryland’s Job Creation Tax Credit administered by the Maryland Department of Commerce.
Over the last year, Taylor Farms contributed $4.9 million to community organizations and philanthropies. ■
