Tyson Foods has recently concluded a line expansion at its prepared foods plant in Emporia, Kansas, US.
The expansion, which cost an estimated US$3 million, created an additional line that will make a product for a national foodservice customer.
About 16 jobs were created as a result of the project.
The project consisted of building a new room to house the line, modifications to existing refrigeration and the installation of equipment.
The Emporia plant produces value-added raw cuts of beef, pork and chicken for food service and retail – both branded and private label.
