Nashville – HealthVerve Food Manufacturing USA, Inc. will invest $2.2 million to expand its California-based operations and locate new manufacturing operations in Livingston.

The Livingston facility, which represents the company’s first expansion outside of its headquarters in Rancho Cucamonga, California, will support HealthVerve’s overall production, allowing the company to meet and exceed its growing consumer demands for shelf-stable beverages.
“Livingston and Overton County will prove to be the ideal location for this company’s success, and we look forward to seeing the prosperity that will follow today’s announcement,” said TNECD Commissioner Stuart McWhorter.

“We are proud to partner with Overton County, City of Livingston, the Livingston-Overton County Chamber of Commerce and the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development to further that mission and look forward to HealthVerve’s future success in the region,” said John Bradley, TVA senior vice president of Economic Development.
Since 2018, TNECD has supported nearly 30 economic development projects in the Upper Cumberland region, resulting in approximately 2,700 job commitments and nearly $1 billion in capital investment.
“Tennessee continues to be a top destination for companies that are looking to expand their operations,” said Rep.
