Wickles Pickles got its start in Dadeville, Alabama.

According to the December 17 release, a key part of the move back to Alabama was the startup of Magnolia Vegetable Processors (MVP), which specializes in pickled vegetables. MVP will process and pack Wickles Pickles.

Chuck Caraway, MVP owner, said his company is still transitioning from the previous supplier.

“We will continue trying to grow the business, adding more employees as needed,” he said.
