Tyson Foods has announced plans to build a new poultry processing complex in Humboldt, Tennessee. The US$300mn project is expected to create more than 1,500 jobs
According to the company statement, “The facility will produce pre-packaged trays of fresh chicken for retail grocery stores nationwide and is predicted to process about 1.25 millions birds per week.”
Doug Ramsey, Tyson’s group president of poultry said, “The location is attractive to us because of the strong support we’ve received from state and local leaders, the existing industrial park and availability of labour, as well as access to feed grains produced in the region.”
“As one of the world’s leading protein companies, we continue to raise the world’s expectations of how much good food can do.”
