Food & Beverage Site Certification

Food & Beverage Site Certification

WSBI’s 99 acre site, adjacent to Herbalife’s manufacturing facility, was one of three sites in North Carolina to be selected by Duke Energy to undergo Austin Consulting’s Food & Beverage Manufacturing Certification Program. This program is used to differentiate sites that are optimal for food and beverage companies, thereby abbreviating the vetting process and reducing companies’ perceived risk for choosing one location over another.  WSBI has successfully completed this program for the Winston-Salem Business Site and is now on a short list of distinguished sites around the United States for future food and beverage build-to-suit opportunities.
