The investment is around 150 million, and it is expected to open the new facility ending 2022. Additionally, 292 people could be employed.
“We are proud and excited to announce the expansion of our operations here in South Carolina where we’ve been doing business since 1994.

One of the goals is to process poultry products based on state-of-the-art technology and high levels of automation. All this, through several technologies that will improve and increase the sanitation and the shelf life of products.
The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to this project. The Council also awarded Kershaw County a $1.2 million Set-Aside Fund grant to assist with related project costs.
