Deli Star is moving its operations into a new-build, 110,000-square-foot processing facility in St. Louis, which will start construction this summer and is expected to open in early 2022. The company's operations were previously located in Fayetteville, Illinois—about 40 miles east of St. Louis. The company is expected to generate 500 new jobs and nearly $100 million in investment for the surrounding area.
Deli Star is a leading provider of high-quality, sustainably cooked proteins. The company will produce Deli Star's sous-vide proteins, slow cooked meats, deli logs, protein salads, sauces and plant-based proteins at the new food manufacturing facility in St. Louis.
