SALT LAKE CITY — The Governor's Office of Economic Development the Economic Development Corporation of Utah announced Thursday an incentive agreement with Pleasant Grove-based dōTERRA — a company that makes aromatic compounds from natural ingredients — that will bring more than 300 new jobs.
Under the terms of the 10-year agreement, the company will pay approximately $83 million in new state tax revenue and will make $60 million in capital investment.
