Rovagnati Specialty Meats, Vineland

Rovagnati Specialty Meats is an Italian food processing company that chose the City of Vineland as its North American headquarters to process, distribute, and wholesale its selection of specialty meats. Rovagnati’s North American headquarters will be located on a subdivided portion (outside of the Environmental Work Zone Easement) of the former Vineland Chemical site, an EPA superfund site. CCI successfully assisted Rovagnati with the recertification of the 2001 Prospective Purchaser Agreement, which was initiated between the City of Vineland and NJDEP. Additionally, CCI was instrumental in expediting the permitting time by working with both the City of Vineland, Rovagnati Specialty Meats, and the Division of Land Use Regulation from the pre-application stage all the way through to final permits. Once all phases of construction are complete, Rovagnati Specialty Meats will consist of approximately 500,000 square feet of manufacturing and processing facilities that will employ up to 60 people.
