“I am so proud to see Radhika succeed as one of Hunter Mill District’s dedicated entrepreneurs!

One of the most popular items in the Virginia Living Store is apparently a hit with much larger audiences, too. Governor Ralph Northam announced this week that OmMade Peanut Butter, a woman- and minority-owned company, will invest approximately $300,000 in Fairfax County to build an all-natural, gourmet peanut butter manufacturing facility.
“Supporting innovative agribusinesses like OmMade Peanut Butter is key to spreading economic growth and opportunity to all parts of the Commonwealth,”said Governor Northam. “With bold and unique flavors, high-quality natural ingredients, and a commitment to locally-sourced peanuts, the company is a natural fit for Virginia."
