NEW YORK (AP) - New York City officials are building a 55,000-square-foot food manufacturing hub with a Japanese salad dressing company as the first tenant.

The city Economic Development Corporation announced the creation of the food hub in the Sunset Park section of Brooklyn on Wednesday. Officials say the space will serve up to 10 food manufacturing companies.

City officials made the announcement at the grand opening of MOMO Dressing, a family-owned Japanese salad dressing company.

The food hub is at the Brooklyn Army Terminal Annex building. The Economic Development Corporation has invested more than $15 million to renovate the building for its new tenants.

Deputy Mayor Alicia Glen says the city wants to support the local food industry “and grow good jobs in the food economy.”
