ROCKY MOUNT—Governor Ralph Northam today announced that Traditional Medicinals, the leading seller of wellness tea in the United States, will invest $29.7 million to establish an East Coast herbal tea manufacturing and processing operation in the Summit View Business Park in Franklin County. Virginia successfully competed with North Carolina for the project, which will create 56 new jobs.
The company will build a state-of-the-art, 125,000-square-foot facility to increase production and market share. The Governor, joined by First Lady Pamela Northam, celebrated the announcement at an event today in Rocky Mount.
“Traditional Medicinals is committed to strengthening rural communities and being good for the planet, and I welcome them to our Commonwealth,” said Governor Northam. “Traditional Medicinals’ decision to locate its East Coast operation in Virginia is a strong reflection of our business-friendly environment, our infrastructure, and our work to support emerging food and beverage processing markets.”
