A Texas company that makes biodegradable plates and bowls from vegetable starch is considering buying an empty building in Fayetteville for a factory that could employ up to 450 people.

The Fayetteville Observer reports that Variety Global Business of Houston has signed a letter of intent to purchase the 125,000-square-foot "shell" building. The Fayetteville-Cumberland County Chamber of Commerce built the facility in 2002 to lure new business.
