ONEIDA, N.Y. — All-Seasonings Ingredients expects to add 11 employees in the next two years, thanks in part to a state grant.

All-Seasonings — which supplies spices, nuts, herbs, seeds and baking supplies to distributors — has grown from 12 to 60 employees in the past decade, according to a news release from New York State Homes and Community Renewal.

 “What started as an idea to supply small and mid-sized food service distributors with private label spices and ingredients has become a classic business success story,” said Homes and Community Renewal Commissioner RuthAnne Visnauskas. “This grant is an investment in All-Seasonings Ingredients and the future of the City of Oneida — signs that Central New York is rising.”

The $162,000 Community Development Block Grant Economic Development Program award was applied for by the City of Oneida.

“We applied for this grant to enable an excellent corporate citizen to once again expand its operations. This award will allow All-Seasonings Ingredients to meet its increasing product demand, create additional job opportunities and improve our local economy,” Oneida Mayor Leo Matzke said in the release.

This is not the first time All-Seasonings has benefitted from a state grant. In 2013, the company was awarded $436,000 to expand operations, adding 15 full-time jobs, according to NYS Homes and Community Renewal records.
