SILVER CITY, N.M. — A Colorado manufacturer of candy and cough drops is relocating to New Mexico.
The New Mexico Economic Development Department recently announced St. Claire’s Organics will move its operations to the village of Santa Clara located near Silver City.
Debra St. Claire, founder of St. Claire’s Organics, says the decision to relocate was based on New Mexico’s welcoming attitude and business friendly environment.
St. Claire’s Organics makes brand mints, candies, and fruit tarts.
New Mexico will provide $100,000 in Local Economic Development Act funds to offset the cost of the land and building acquisition.
