Innovative Olive Street work space opens
The 942 Olive building is officially
open with 12,800-square-feet of space
designed to emphasize innovation,
partnerships and opportunities. This is
going to be a space where talented young
minds are going to feel free to sculpt the
ideas of tomorrow, and thats so exciting
to me. UO President Michael Schill said
in his remarks at the buildings official
ribbon cutting.
The building is home to the universitys
Product Design Program, Tyler Invention
Greenhouse, and Eugene Regional
Accelerator and Innovation Network
(RAIN). The three occupants have their
own devoted sections, but 942 Olive
Street boasts numerous shared spaces
and is intentionally designed to foster
interaction and collaboration between
students, entrepreneurs, researchers
and others innovators. It brings the
latest ideas in sustainability and green
chemistry, product design studios and
RAINs entrepreneurial activities together
under one roof in the heart of Eugenes
burgeoning innovation district.
Exposed brick and other original
architectural elements from the 1908
building are visible, but the modern space

features labs and design spaces outfitted
with tools such as a 3-D printer and a
laser cutter. Two phone booths provide
privacy for making cell phone calls and
Skype calls, and the building is outfitted
with high-speed internet access courtesy
of the downtown fiber project backed by
the City of Eugene and the Eugene Water

& Electric Board.


The Olive Street building has been
several years in the works. It was sold
to the University of Oregon for $1 in the
spring of 2015 by the C ity of Eugene
through its urban renewal agency, and
the building underwent a $3 million
renovation.

Congratulations to Code3Simulator and Agility Robotics


for taking home part of the record-breaking $1.2 million
in investor funding at the Willamette Angels Conference,
founded in part by the Eugene Area Chamber of Commerce.
This year we had record applicants, record investor diversity
and record conference attendees, demonstrating that the
start-up community is thriving in the Willamette Valley.
A $300,000 investment went to Code3Simulator, a
software company that enables cities to optimize fire/EMS
service delivery with data-driven strategies. Agility Robotics,
a company that designs and builds robotic solutions for
telepresence, delivery and logistics, received a $100,000
investment. Lolas Fruit Shrubs, a Eugene based startup,
won the Launch Stage Competition and $2,500 from Palo
Alto Software. Additional sidecar investments went to other
finalists and several past winners also received additional
funding.

Four questions
We asked local businesses to respond to questions that give insight into
their companies and the value of their Eugene Chamber membership.

Jamie
Christopher
Sales & Marketing
Operations Manager,
PakTech
PakTech designs and manufactures ecofriendly plastic handles for food and beverages
as well as household and consumer goods.
How did PakTech get started? How
did you land in Eugene?

Jim Borg, our president and founder,


started Oregon Precision Industries in
1988. He and his family have strong
Oregon ties. OPI did a lot of injection
molding projects, mostly focusing on the
needs of industry in and around Eugene.
In the 1990s a dairy company came to him
and asked if he could put two milk jugs
together for a new project for a relatively
new store called Costco. The rest is history.
My wife and I moved to Oregon in
2008 and decided we wanted to stay in
Eugene with our brand new baby boy. I
came to PakTech about five years ago. We
have found success and growth together,
and it is a great company to work with.
What trends are shaping your
industry/business?

The club stores are not only selling bulk


packaging in large containers, but also
single serve containers in a multi-package
format. We are able to serve both types of
packaging well, and our ability to design,
sell, manufacture and ship from one location gives us the ability to make changes
and be dynamic for our customers and
their needs.
We started making 100% recyclable
can handles from post-consumer recycled

Jamie Christopher says people are often surprised to hear PakTech


manufactures most of their products in Eugene.

resin about 5 or 6 years ago. They provide


98% coverage of the top of the can, and we
offer them in 31 standard colors, making
the cans look great. We are positioned at
the center of the craft-brewery explosion
and its having a positive effect on our
growth. Plus, other industries have become
interested in our can handles so we expect
to see our growth continue.
What about your business is uniquely
Eugene?

We constantly hear surprise when we


tell people we manufacture our products in
Eugene. Most people expect it to be done
overseas.

8 OP EN FO R BUSI N ESS | EUGEN E AREA CH AMB ER O F COM M ERC E

Our commitment to customer service


and quality allows us to keep good manufacturing jobs right here.
Why would you recommend the
Chamber to a friend?

PakTech has benefited from the training and networking opportunities. The
training is afforded to any employee, in
any position. From formal networking
events, to informal conversations with
other local companies, our involvement
in the Chamber and Chamber events
has paid dividends. For these reasons, we
would recommend participation to any
Eugene company.

Four questions

locally sourced products since 1980.

when the founder was ready to retire. It


has been an amazing adventure where we
have relied on our interest in all things
culinary, short stints in the food production industry and most of all - our love
of chocolate. Euphoria is truly a Eugene
company. It started here and grew thanks
to community support. We want to keep
that spirit alive as we make changes that
allow the company to grow.

How did you get into the chocolate


business?

gaged and driving everything from product


sourcing to unique flavors. Trying to be
all-things-to-all-people is a sure way to
drive yourself crazy, but we need to stay
relevant to the consumer, too!
The bean-to-bar movement within
the chocolate industry appealed to us immediately. The opportunity to be a craft
chocolate maker was something we could
not pass up. Van has spent the last 16
months perfecting the process of roasting
cocoa beans and turning them into mouthwatering chocolate worthy of the Euphoria
name.
We cant wait to makethis truly artisan
product available to our customers.
What wouldyou tell someone who is
thinking about opening a business in
Eugene?

Find a networking group and get to


know people in the community! Eugene
is unique and building relationships can
save you a lot of heartache, time and money. People who have been around a while
know the business climate, local suppliers
and just about anything else you may need
to know. That kind of an inside track can
be a huge help. There are organizations in
Eugene that cover everything locationspecific groups, business-to-business
groups, industry groups. Find one or two
who are a good fit for your needs and engage regularly.
I also think Eugene is unique and
amazing community that truly supports
and buys local. As a retailer of locally made
products, this kind of customer loyalty is
invaluable.
What element of the Chamber
has been most beneficial to your
company?

Euphoria Chocolate co-owner Bonnie Glass says the opportunity to be a craft


chocolate maker was something they could not pass up.

The Chamber has been an excellent


resource. In April we attended a training
that will help us as we prepare for federally
mandated changes in the food production
industry. The Chamber bringing the training to Eugene means that more of our staff
can attend and be better educated. I look
forward to more programs like this which
help companies and their employees.

Four questions

Singing Dog Vanilla co-founder Marty Parisien says the most beneficial service the Eugene Chamber of Commerce has
provided him was the monitoring of local legislation and regulations that affect his business.

Marty Parisien
Co-founder, Singing Dog Vanilla
Singing Dog Vanilla produces organic pure vanilla extract and
organic vanilla beans and a range of vanilla products distributed all
over the world.
How did your company get started and land in Eugene?

Bill Wiedmann and I founded Singing Dog Vanilla on April


Fools Day, 2004 in Kailua, Hawaii. Wed been working together
throughout the Pacific assisting farmers with marketing, finance,
and productivity improvements.
At the time I was reading a book by Seth Godin called Purple
Cow and read, But vanilla is boring. You cant build a fast-growing
company around vanilla. When I read that I thought, What a
great idea! Build a company around vanilla (If you read the whole
book you will see that we took those lines a bit out of context).
About that time Bill was introduced to people from Papua, New
Guinea, that grew vanilla. (We later expanded into Indonesia
where most of our growing now takes place.)
It became clear that we needed to be on the Mainland to gain
momentum. My wife and I both graduated from UO and loved
the area. In 2005 we moved Singing Dog Vanilla to Eugene and
in 2006 we set up our second office and a bottling plant in Spring
City, Pennsylvania near Bill and his wife.
What might someone be surprised to know about your
company?

People are often surprised that we do our own distribution.


1 0 OP E N FO R BUSI N ESS | EUGEN E AREA CH AMB ER O F COM M ERC E

Since we have warehouses on both coasts we are able to get vanilla


products to customers in three days or less. We are also sold all
over Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Japan.
We created our own open-source Fair Trade Plus+ program,
under which we pay market price for their crops and share a percentage of our sales with our partner farmers that grow our vanilla.
We happily share the use of this mark with other companies that
choose to do the same.
What about your business is uniquely Eugene?

Our offices and warehouses smell amazing. We are next door to


two coffee roasters and a commercial bakery. Not a bad smelling
neighborhood.
Our customers and crew in Eugene resonate with our silly
name and perks like employee birthdays as paid holidays. We also
use made-up names: In our Vanillaverse, people who love vanilla
are called Vanillaphiles, my sailboat is named Vanillatude, our talks
at stores are called Vanillavents, and our sample packet is called a
(wait for it) MiniVanilli.
What element of the Chamber has been most beneficial to
your company?

As an international player in a very specialized market, we have


to pay close attention to regulations and laws all around the world.
Its easy to forget that local measures sometimes have a significant
impact on our company, like Prop 65 in California or a Free Trade
agreement with Korea. The most beneficial service that the Eugene
Chamber of Commerce has provided to us is the monitoring of
local legislation and regulations that may affect us and then organizing a forum for us to learn more.

COVER STORY

Food far
and wide
The Eugene area food and beverage sector
posts strong gains and reaches global markets
By Cara Roberts Murez
Photos by David Loveall

Whether its a healthy muesli breakfast, a dish of ice cream, a chilled glass
of beer or a mug of hot tea at the end of a long day, it is made here and
shipped all over the country and the world.
These foods and drinks are just a few of the many edible products that
workers brew, mix and bake at Eugene-Springfield area business.
Food and beverage manufacturing is thriving right now in this community,
but its also an industry that has deep roots, with manufacturing of consumables dating back many decades in Lane County.
Thanks in part to the fact that food is essential, the local industry was
resilient during the great recession, and has been growing since the recovery
with gains both inemployment figures and in number of businesses.
Projections suggest this is just the beginning.
We lost a lot of manufacturing during the great recession, but the food
and beverage sector just kind of flattened out and then continued to grow
right when the recession was over, said Brian Rooney, regional economist for
Lane and Douglas counties for the Oregon Employment Department.
It has had substantial growth since then, Rooney added.
Between 2010 and 2015, the number of businesses that make up Lane
Countys food and beverage sector grew from 125 to 144, according to Oregon Employment Department figures. The sector includes businesses that
manufacture food and beverages, as well as merchant wholesalers of grocery,
farm products and distilled spirits, beer and wine.
Jobs in the sector increased by 23 percent during that time frame, from
2,907 to 3,572.
Even in 2011, when other manufacturing had not climbed out of the
recession, food and beverage manufacturing was building.
Projections made in 2012 were that employment would grow by 13.2 per-

is on track to significantly bypass that number,
Rooney said.
Growth was a little over 15.6 percent in
the first three years. That would represent a 52
percent growth rate overall if the growth continued over the full 10-year period, Rooney
said.
It looks like 2015 is going to be the second strongest growth year since the end of the
recession in 2010, Rooney said.
Looking ahead

The growing success of the products crafted


here has made this industry something the
area is now known for throughout Oregon, in
other states and even internationally.
In recent years, especially, Eugene has
developed an identity as a manufacturer of
quality craft beer, cereals, frozen desserts, teas,
snack foods and honey, making it a highly
important sector that brings money back into
this community and provides family-wage
jobs. This also has set the tone for what its like
to live here.
The Eugene Chamber wants to capitalize
on this opportunity for local businesses.

businesses, helping them solve issues and take

advantage of the many growth opportunities,


with the goal of retaining and creating jobs in
the Eugene-Springfield area.
The Eugene Chamber along with EWEB
and Lane Workforce Partnership identified
the Food and Beverage sector as one of the
economic engines of the community with a
great amount of room for growth potential,
more even than the nearly 150 food and beverage companies already here and the nearly

1 4 OP E N FO R BUSI N ESS | EUGEN E AREA CH AMB ER O F COM M ERC E

3,500 people they employ.


The Chamber is committed to working
with their partners in economic development
to be a leader in developing and implementing
a plan to grow the food and beverage manufacturing sector in our region.
In January 2016, the Eugene Chamber
convened more than 30 food and beverage
leaders to discuss barriers and opportunities
for growth in Lane County. The sector identified six top areas where the sector strategies
team can work to better support the industry.
The team is working to start, grow and
attract more food and beverage companies, to
streamline regulations and permitting, and to
smooth the cost of utilities, said Leigh Anne
Hogue, director of economic development for
the Chamber of Commerce.
It also is formulating plans for branding
and promoting Lane County, building a
stronger workforce and increasing collaboration within the industry, Hogue added.

Here at this family-owned freezing and
storage business, it is possible to see a snapshot of the vast diversity of Lane Countys
food and beverage manufacturing industry.
Each dome that tops SnoTemps 235,000
square-foot structure represents an expansion,
from the original 1957 building to the 8th
expansion in 2014. The result is over 5 football
fields of space storing everything from raw
goods to finished desserts awaiting shipment
to local grocers and far off locations throughout the United States and the world.
We are only successful if our customers
are successful, SnoTemp CEO Jason Lafferty
said. Its been really encouraging to watch the
food and beverage ecosystem build out.
At SnoTemp, the company provides an
integral link in the food supply chain, keeping
food cold and safe.
The Lafferty family has owned its freezing
and storage businesses in Eugene and Albany
since 1957 and 1974, respectively, uniting
them under the same name in 2010.
The business employs about 100 people,
three-fourths of them in Eugene where
temperature-controlled warehouse space
ranges from 20 degrees below zero to ambient
temperature.
In addition to preservation, the business
offers food and beverage manufacturers inventory control and order fulfillment services.
Lafferty has witnessed firsthand the boom
in craft brewing and in local frozen dessert
manufacturing. He said he has seen the area
transition from being a good incubator for
these businesses to being a place where they
can mature, as well.
SnoTemp has invested in its own future by

adding a second entrance for trucks in 2013


and investing more than $1 million in energy
efficiency in the past half-dozen years.
If we didnt exist, everybody would have
to build their own warehouse, Lafferty said.
The value that we provide is that we take
the whole warehousing and logistics piece from
our customer, and let them focus their capital
on making products and selling products.
Ninkasi Brewing Company

Eugenes own Ninkasi Brewing Company


has experienced that first-hand, using SnoTemps services to keep its beer cold and ready
for customers.
Craft beers brewing success during and
since the recession is certainly among the

reasons that the sector is successful.


Ninkasi which started in mid-2006 in
leased space within a Springfield Restaurant
is at the center of that success, producing more
than 100,000 barrels this past year, making it
the 36th largest craft brewer in the country.
The beer manufacturing company, owned
by Jamie Floyd and Nikos Ridge and aptly
named after the Sumerian goddess of fermenting, operates in the Whiteaker neighborhood. Its extensive space spans a city street,
its campus framed by walls in the brewers
signature teal-and-black color scheme.

of them locally, and sells its beer in 14 states.
Its first beer Total Domination IPA is
still one of its flagships, but now shares the
limelight with six additional flagships, five
seasonal beers, special releases each quarter
and a single-batch research and development
series that lets the brewers flex their creative
genius while taking the company back to its
small-scale roots.
For us it was the right time with that right
beer and its just kind of grown from there,
said Communications Director Ali AAsum.
Ninkasi wants to make great beer and support its community, AAsum said. The company works closely with local business, including
SnoTemp and printer Shelton Turnbull.
A lot of things that we do here are
within the community, said Jennifer OlsonMorzenti, vice president of operations for
Ninkasi. Weve tried to stay within that and
help grow the economy as well.
What we bring to the community, along
with the other food and beverage (manufacturers), is the sustainable jobs, the living wages
and working together as a group to continue
to support that, Olson-Morzenti added.
Wildtime Foods

The thriving industry is great news for local


food manufacturers like Wildtime Foods, which
has operated in this community for 35 years.
When this natural foods business began
in the early 1980s, the owners sold granola
delivered by bicycle. Though it has come a
long way in sophistication and sales, Wildtime
Foods has never veered from its hand-made
beginnings.
In the first floor of its two-story space, also
in the Whiteaker area, not far from carefully
organized boxes of cashews and tubs of oil,
employees pour in grains, nuts and dried fruits
by hand to make products such as its Organic
Swiss Muesli sold in stores under the Grizzlies Brand.
Many of the granolas, cereals and trail
mixes that the company produces are mixed
by hand, baked in small ovens and packaged
in the same building before being distributed
to local stores and shipped to natural foods
grocers in Manhattan, Vermont and Tampa,
Florida.
Theres a level of consistency and quality,
but theres also a uniqueness when it comes
to texture and appearance and flavor that can
be achieved through the handmade process,

Whit Hemphill, co-owner of Wildtime Foods, says the company employs about 30,
almost doubling its numbers after moving to its new location a year and a half ago.

One of the perks of being an employee is a
food allowance for Grizzlies products, which
creates an effective quality control at the company, as well.
If anything changed, we would certainly
hear about it because we have a vocal in a
good way crew that takes pride in what they
make, Hemphill said.
The national movement to eat food
sourced locally, organically or with familiar
ingredients, has been a boon to natural food
manufacturers.

Sales of organic food in particular were


up 11 percent in 2014 from the previous year,
according to the Organic Trade Association,
nearing a milestone of a 5 percent share of the
total food market and totaling $39.1 billion in
sales.
Yet, Hemphill said, his is not a company
that has ever pursued the latest trends.
Weve been pioneers in the sense that
weve been doing it a long time, Hemphill
said, but at the same time we havent had to
go out and spend a ton of marketing dollars
to try to get the message into peoples heads.
Attune Foods

In recent years, many local businesses have


received national attention and dollars, which
in some cases has led to major capital investments (see related story).
These companies include the Peace ce-

company Golden Temple and is now made by
Attune Foods, owned by Post Holdings.
Attune Foods, which produces Peace,
Sweet Home Farm, Erewhon, Uncle Sam, Attune, Willamette Valley and Golden Temple
bulk brands, makes nearly 50 million pounds
of granola annually in Eugene. The company
employs 300 people at its Eugene location.
When I started (15 years ago), we had
one oven and one packaging line, said Chris
Cameron, senior director of supply chain for
Attune Foods. We now have two ovens, two
extruders and five packaging lines.
Attune Foods specializes in the natural
and specialty cereal market. The company
sells its products in almost every state, as well
as abroad in places such as South Africa and
Singapore.
It also has a commitment to feeding the
hungry, donating 1.2 million servings of cereal
to school kids, in a collaboration with other
local businesses Grain Millers and GloryBee,
since 2006, Cameron said.
Among the reasons for the companys success are its location.
The Eugene location ensures easy access
to food technologists for testing products for
safety and quality at area universities and in
Portland without having to deal with the congestion and higher cost of doing business that
would come with being located in Portland,
Cameron said.
Catalysts for growth

Eugene is a good place for food and beverage manufacturers in part because it has close
access to a broad range of agricultural products
grown in the Willamette Valley and along the
West Coast between the Yakima Valley and
California. We also have access to great water
to support the breweries.
Infrastructure, including commercial space,
access to energy due to other types of manufacturing, and proximity to Interstate 5 and
railways have also contributed to the growth,

regional economist Rooney said.


The Food and Beverage Sector Strategy
Project led by the Eugene Area Chamber of
Commerce will continue its focused work in
this sector over the next three to five years,
Hogue said.
The goal is to build upon those strategies
and increase food and beverage sector growth.
This has the potential to positively affect food
and beverage manufacturers, but also would
impact many other related businesses, including printing, packaging, shipping, advertising,
food storage, real estate and construction, and
would create jobs.
Food and beverage manufacturing can help
define a community, Rooney said. If the prod-

ucts have a good reputation, that helps with


overall perception of the area. We also have a
strong talent base, partially because the talent
moves between businesses in the cluster, gaining experience that makes everyone stronger.
Lane County has long had a variety of
grassroots food manufacturers, and the growing number of these businesses says something
about the community itself, said Hemphill
from Wildtime Foods.
In terms of the innovation and the different products that are here and the small businesses, Hemphill said, I think that speaks
a lot to the independent nature of people
that move to Eugene and that want to live
here.

Food sector fuels many secondary industries


By Cara Roberts Murez

When food and beverage manufacturers


create their products, it is of course a critical step in the process.
But it isnt the only one.
The products need packaging. They require
labeling to make their goods stand out on
shelves and in coolers.
Shipping services, beverage distributors,
restaurants, cold storage services, contractors
and grocers, too, all see the impact of food and
beverage manufacturing on their own businesses.
Manufacturing in particular has a lot of
secondary benefits to other industries, said
Brian Rooney, regional economist for Lane
and Douglas counties for the Oregon Employment Department.
That includes not only food and beverage
manufacturing but all manufacturing, which
can provide good-paying jobs. Exports of

products brings money back to the community, Rooney said. This can also help in other
areas, such as demand for housing, goods and
services.
The impact of the industry is even greater
still, said Leigh Anne Hogue, director of
economic development for the Eugene Area
Chamber of Commerce, when you consider
that all businesses, really, benefit from a successful industry such as this one.
Traded-sector industries set the foundation for the entire local economy, Hogue
said. This includes a variety of businesses
that might seem more peripheral, such as
banks, restaurants and insurance companies.
Without the manufacturing jobs, Hogue said,
other businesses in the community could not
start or grow because the disposable income
needed to buy those goods and services would
not be here.
The food and beverage sector includes gro-

2 0 OP E N FO R BUSI N ESS | EUGEN E AREA CH AMB ER O F COM M ERC E

cery, farm product and wine/beer wholesalers.


The annual average employment in 2014
for those food and beverage wholesalers was
1,214 people, a number that has remained
stable the past couple years, Rooney said.
Printing, in particular, is a type of business
that has seen a benefit from local food and
beverage manufacturing, especially from the
booming craft brewing industry.
Printing for most of the past decade or so
has been trending downward because were
seeing more news and advertising done electronically, Rooney said.
But food is one of those things that people
want to buy in person as opposed to over the
Internet, he added. Therefore, we still need
some packaging and labeling.
Printing and related support services
dropped from about 800 employees in 2001
to a bottom point of 287 in 2011, Rooney
said. It has had an upturn since then, with 350

employees in 2015 in Lane County.


Shelton Turnbull, a Eugene-based,
employee-owned printer that began
operations more than 90 years ago, is a
great example.
The company prints labels for both
the wine and beer industries, including
for more than 60 craft breweries, said
marketing manager Sarah Evans.
The business experienced the downturn in the market, not in publishing but
in printing forms and other marketing
and sales materials. People became more
strategic about what they would print
versus what they would produce electronically, Evans said.
In the craft beer industry, many breweries have their own artists design the
labels, but they choose an outside printer
to ensure good printing quality and help
their products stand out, Evans said.
Thats where I see that were becoming a player in food packaging overall
is people who understand that their
product needs to have, their labels and
their packaging need to have, the same
quality that represents their product,
Evans said.

The traded sector cycle


Traded sector industries like food and beverage manufacturing send our
products out of the area and brings money into Lane county, which stimulates jobs,
real estate and the need for goods and services. These demands further contribute

Food manufacturers invest in capital projects


By Cara Roberts Murez

While the food and beverage manufacturing industry in Eugene and the surrounding
area thrives, local manufacturers are betting
that the interest in tea, ice cream and natural
foods will only continue to grow.
East West Tea Company, Oregon Ice
Cream Co., and GloryBee all have expansion
projects in the works. Each expects these significant capital investments will be worthwhile
over the long term.
Theres a lot of growth opportunity,
explained Eric Eddings, president and CEO
for Oregon Ice Cream, including double-digit
growth nationally in natural and conventional
frozen desserts. It is a good time to make
investments in ice cream companies.
Oregon Ice Cream Co.

Oregon Ice Cream is investing between


$8 million and $10 million in its Eugene ice
cream plant to increase production volume

and efficiency for its ice cream lines.

Oregon Ice Cream was established as a


family business 78 years ago, first under the
name Dutch Girl Ice Cream. Over the years,
the company changed hands a couple of times,
most recently in 2014 when it was purchased
by Branch Brook Holdings, based in New
Jersey.
Though headquarters for Oregon Ice
Cream are in Camas, Wash., the manufacturing plant is located in Eugene.

The company employs 125 to 160 people,


depending on the season, making ice creams
for food service and retail customers, as well as
co-packing ice cream bars for other companies,
including Tillamook, Yasso and Coconut Bliss.
Its own brands are Aldens Organic, Julies
Organic and Cascade Glacier ice creams.

The company is demolishing part of its


existing plant and adding on an 8,000 square
foot new structure. It also is retrofitting existing buildings.

So were bringing in a combination of new


construction as well as significant investment
in new equipment, Eddings said.
Eddings said the investment will add
technology that should draw more highly
skilled- and highly-compensated, labor.
Oregon Ice Cream has made it a point to
use local businesses on the expansion, Eddings
said, including local contractor Ryan Thomas
Construction, SSW Engineers and Knife
River.
To be able to use the local vendors. That
just stimulates the local economy in general,
Eddings said. Its a win-win for everybody.
East West Tea Company

East West Tea Company, which makes


Yogi Teas, is in the planning stages for its
expected new 175,000 square foot tea factory,
which would be located on a 13-acre parcel in
West Eugene.
The project would bring its operations
under one roof, instead of three Lane County

locations, and would enable them to double
tea production, Khalsa said.
The company, which operates in the United
States and Europe, makes about 60 percent of
its tea in Springfield.
Yogi was once part of the Golden Temple
company, making cereals starting in the 1970s.
The company began making tea in this community in the early 1990s. The cereal part
of the business was sold in 2010. East West
Tea Company is owned by the Sikh Dharma
religious community.
Yogi makes about 60 varieties of tea. It
employs 129 people, with 111 of them in the
Eugene/Springfield area.
The capital investment project is expected
to cost between $15 and $20 million.
We see a lot of potential and a lot of
growth, Singh.
GloryBee

GloryBee, which was founded in 1975 by


Dick and Pat Turanski in Eugene, is ready to

more quickly than the market can support, said


Wilson, who is senior executive vice president.
Currently GloryBee has almost 115,000
square feet of space divided between two buildings on North Seneca Road and Airport Road.
A plan to purchase a 30-acree site in West
Eugene with a 68,000 square foot building
is still pending, Wilson said. The company
would plan to keep its Airport Road facility,
the larger of its current two, and renovate the
new acquisition into a 70,000 square foot
production facility.
GloryBee is both an ingredient supplier,
providing honey and liquid sweeteners for

other companies finished products and a


manufacturer of its own Aunt Pattys and
GloryBee branded products.
The company employs 200 people. Thats
a significant increase, about 55 people, more
than they employed just four years ago, Wilson said.
We believe that our industry will just
continue to grow, Wilson said.
Were excited for the other food and
beverage companies in our community, she
added. Were excited that we can really all
partner and work together to continue to
make this a great place to thrive.
