“We are experiencing an increased demand for fresh consumer ready protein products. The expansion will allow us to deliver on this growing opportunity,” said Dave Davidson, vice president, case-ready operations, National Beef. “National Beef is committed to investing in projects that help us serve our customer requirements for high-quality products.”
The current Moultrie consumer ready operation employs approximately 300 workers and produces consumer ready beef, pork and ground beef products. The company plans to hire approximately 100 additional employees to work at the expanded facility. The expansion is scheduled for completion in the fourth quarter of 2018.
