Star Food Products to relocate, expand

An Alamance County food manufacturer is relocating its distribution operations from Kernersville to Burlington, a $2.2 million investment that will double its space and relocate about 20 jobs.

Burlington-based Star Food Products recently purchased about 75,000 square feet in the former Konica Minolta Manufacturing building off of Interstate 40/85, near Burlington-Alamance Regional Airport, for about $1.7 million from Biggerstaff and Crawley LLC, according to county real estate records.

Norman Mabry, Star’s president, said the Burlington space will become the new distribution center for the company, which manufactures and distributes food products such as chili, chicken salad and pimento cheese to grocers such as Family Dollar and Food Lion in Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina.

Mabry said Star will move out of a 35,000-square-foot distribution space it is leasing on Graves Street in Kernersville at the end of December.
