Louisiana’s Agribusiness Sector Expands

Home to a strong range of farm and forest firms, Louisiana’s $12 billion agribusiness sector also encompasses food processing, wood and paper manufacturing, and fuel generation. Led by Hunt Forest Products and RoyOMartin expansions, the state’s forest products sector experienced steady growth in 2018. Value-added food projects emerged as well, with US Foods, Riceland Crawfish and Richard’s Cajun Foods launching expansions across Louisiana.
