Mass. food manufacturer eyes purchase of Carla’s Pasta’s S. Windsor production plant; plans $71M in upgrades

A Massachusetts food manufacturer is planning to expand to South Windsor, with a proposed $71 million upgrade to the sprawling Carla’s Pasta facility, which is slated to close “imminently,” a town official said. The company is planning a 28,000-square-foot addition to Carla’s Pasta’s 148,083-square-foot food production plant at 50 Talbot Lane. The Town Council on Monday approved a seven-year tax abatement on the value of the new portion of the building, contingent upon Home Market Foods’ completion of the project, the creation of 210 jobs and payment of all other real estate taxes on the property. Negotiations between town officials and the company, under the codename “Project Fin,” occurred during an executive session of the Economic Development Commission on March 27. The abatement would total approximately $70,000 a year for the first three years, and then would decrease, Buganski said. A tax abatement on the existing building is set to expire in 2025. The property is appraised at $15.96 million.
