The first business to open in White County’s Mid-America Commerce Park in Wolcott is having its official recognition on Monday.
EggLife LLC is celebrating the opening of its new 60,000 square-foot production facility with a ribbon-cutting ceremony Monday at 11:30 a.m. and luncheon for friends, family, VIPs and media at noon, featuring dishes made from EggLife egg white wraps.
This is the first dedicated production center for the company, which is producing a gluten-free, low carbohydrate wrap and is a subsidiary of Rose Acre Farms.
Rose Acre Farms has been involved with White County Economic Development to adjacent land in the industrial and commerce park.
EggLife will produce its egg white wraps with cage-free eggs from chickens raised on family farms, according to a press release.
“These ready-to-eat, grain-free and dairy-free tortillas — which deliver five grams of protein, less than one gram of carbs, zero grams of saturated fat and only 25-30 calories per wrap — will be available in a select number of grocery stores beginning in October 2019, with broader distribution expected in 2020,” according to the company.
EggLife founder Peggy Claiborne Johns will join Marcus Rust, CEO of Rose Acre Farms at the ribbon cutting, and local business and community leaders are also expected to be part of officially opening the facility.
The plant began production this summer, and has to date created more than more than 50 jobs in the Northwest Indiana region.
The ceremony will be at the plant at North 911 County Road 1200 West.

EggLife bought the shell building that was the first building in the park, built by White County to attract businesses.
All other businesses looking at the park will build their own buildings.
The President of White County Economic Development, Randy Mitchell, has said that Sweetner Supply of Brookfield, Illinois, is planning to move within a year.
Mid-America is located off U.S. 65 and less than an hour’s drive from Logansport.
