You know that cinnamon bread you had for breakfast or the chips you ate at lunch? There’s a good chance some of the ingredients came from a company setting up shop in St. Joseph this spring.

CII, based in Leavenworth, Kansas, is building a manufacturing plant in the Eastowne Business Park that initially will employ 25 workers and eventually, more than 50. Its products range from chocolate, strawberry and cinnamon inclusions and swirls to health and wellness items such as granola clusters and plant-based protein crisps.
