“Our goal is not only to keep business in California, but to invite companies to business-friendly Butte County,” states Oroville Economic Alliance Director Michael Glaze. “We know many states have contacted Huy Fong Foods, Inc. in an effort to move its Sriracha facility out of California, but we want Mr. Tran and Huy Fong Foods to know that we’re ready to turn up the heat and fight to bring this hot sauce to Oroville.”

The alliance believes that Oroville is a great location for the factory because of its proximity to several important California cities and highways.
