Greater Hazleton has positioned itself as an ideal location for businesses in the food processing industry due to its strategic location near the crossroads of Interstate 80 and 81 and its dedicated and highly-skilled workforce.
CAN DO, Inc. is focused on bringing food processing industries to the area to take advantage of the region’s many qualities, including the competitive operating environment, an abundant water supply and rail service. The organization promotes its ability to serve the food processing industry through its We CAN DO Food blog at www.wecandofood.com.
The blog features stories that showcase Greater Hazleton’s growing food processing industry cluster and the positive attributes companies will find here.

These companies provide good, family-sustaining jobs and our superb location at the intersection of Interstates 80 and 81 can’t be beat.”
