Online Food Retailer Expanding in Charlottesville

Gov. Terry McAuliffe announced yesterday that Charlottesville based online grocer is investing $735,000. and creating 25 new jobs. Relay Foods is gearing up to expand its Mid-Atlantic sales of Virginia sourced foods by three million dollars over the next three years. In Charlottesville, the Governor presented a $50,000. grant from the Virginia Agriculture and Development Fund to support that effort and then toured Relay’s 12,000 square foot fulfillment center. Investments in agriculture, the governor said, help diversify Virginia’s economy, which relies heavily on federal defense spending. In fact Virginia gets more money than any other state. McAuliffe said that’s great when they’re spending but major cuts are going on now and that’ll mean changes.
