I.M.H.O. your first example makes an awful long sentence, so the second
would be better. However, I would write it as:

"Our team's range of expertise includes production, assembly, food
processing, distribution, and transportation.'

whether you want to add emphasis by adding a dash, or colon, after
'includes', is up to you.
