FALL RIVER — When Blount Fine Foods first expanded to the Fall River Industrial Park from its original Warren, R.I., facility in 2004, they employed 75 people. Back then, the company that started out in the clam and oyster business was known as Blount Seafood.

Today, Blount, which is now a national company that has increased its product line to soup and other comfort foods, employees 1,100 people in Fall River, holds 60 percent of the national share of the fresh soup market and is in the process of a $65 million expansion here in the city.

President and co-owner Todd Blount, whose company spans five generations and dates back to the 1800s, indicated on a recent tour of the 250,000-square-foot facility on Graham Road, that Fall River has been a great fit for Blount’s headquarters.
