Potatoes are not the only crop that you will see while driving through the Mini-Cassia area. You will also see sugar beets, wheat, barley, beans and alfalfa. Another part of the rural picture of this area is the raising of beef cattle, dairy cows, sheep and hogs.
There are major food processors in the area, including McCain Foods, Kraft Foods, J.R. Simplot Co., Magic Valley Foods and Amalgamated Sugar. Corrugated boxes are also produced locally by Boise Cascade. The area is also home to equipment manufacturing, metal fabrication and precision machining companies as well as state-of-the-art telecommunication and health service companies that are all designing new products to meet the demands of modern technology.
The growth of business in the area is attributed to a number of reasons. First, there is an inviting business climate with competitive costs of doing business, including some of the best utility rates in the nation. The area also features nationally renowned technology training centers and a dedicated and productive workforce of skilled and semi-skilled workers. Local governments working together with the Mini-Cassia Chamber of Commerce and the Mini-Cassia Development Commission are also doing all they can to make relocating or expanding into the area easy and profitable.
