CANAJOHARIE — Operators of the proposed cannabis business at the old Beech-Nut site spelled out in more detail this week both how the business will work, and what job opportunities will look like for local residents.
Up to 500 workers could be employed at the site by the third phase of the rollout, and those jobs — ranging from management and inventory positions to lab techs and agricultural experts — will come mostly with daytime hours and benefits.
Representatives of E29 Labs met with community members, as well as federal, state, county, village officials and business leaders Thursday to familiarize the community with what they are planning to do at the old baby food manufacturing plant at Exit 29 on the Thruway. Specific attention focused on the impact on the village of Canajoharie.
