Food manufacturing in Chicago is big business and Chicago has been at the top of food manufacturing for quite some time. Chicago’s food manufacturing industry dates back to the early 1800’s. In the early days Chicago was known as a milling center for spring wheat and then eventually grew into a center for converting raw products into edible products.

Since the late 1800’s Chicago has grown into a global leader in food processing including baked good, cereals, meats and candy.
