The Massachusetts Growth Capital Corporation (MGCC) announced today a loan of $300,000 for Custom Seasonings, Inc. of Gloucester.
"Custom Seasonings is in a classic situation – the bank can't make additional loans – but sales are increasing – it's where a Massachusetts Growth Capital Corporation loan can make the difference" - said Charles T. Grigsby, MGCC Interim President.

They are extremely responsive and clearly understand the needs associated with the continued growth and success of Custom Seasonings, Inc. Thanks to our partnership with them and the capital they provided, Custom Seasonings, Inc. will be able to create new jobs, increase our manufacturing capability and broaden the scope of our business," Mark Dellafera, Owner.
