Global Food Hub
West Sacramento is located minutes from the State Capitol, midway between San Francisco and Lake Tahoe, in the heart of California's Great Central Valley. West Sacramento has an abundance of land, quality water, and nearby agricultural production combined with market access and the world-renowned food and agricultural research at U.C. Davis. This has attracted over 55 companies involved in food and beverage research, production, and distribution, establishing West Sacramento as the Global Food Hub of the Sacramento Region. West Sacramento companies have a global presence, such as Bayer Crop Science, Nippon Shokken U.S.A. Inc., Shinmei U.S.A. Corporation, and TOMRA Sorting Solutions.

Why Manufacturers Choose West Sacramento
West Sacramento has long been an ideal location for manufacturers, particularly in the technology trades. Growth in this sector can be attributed to companies’ desire for proximity to major markets, infrastructure for efficient and reliable transportation logistics, availability of existing facilities and build-to-suit opportunities, a talented and diverse local workforce, and access to cutting-edge research activities at major research centers including UC Davis and the nearby Lawrence Livermore National Labs, as well as UC Berkeley. These assets provide tremendous opportunities for manufacturing companies, especially considering the Sacramento area is the lowest cost major metropolitan area in California. Within this industry the region is seeing increased activity in high technology, food technologies, energy efficient products, and renewable fuels and materials manufacturing. Recent company locations and expansions include Mounting Systems, Intel, Mori Seiki, TELEFUNKEN Semiconductors, Nippon Shokken, DST Output, Aerojet, and Hewlett-Packard Co. to name a few.
