You’re probably familiar with Tyson Foods and probably have some of their meat products in your freezer right now! After all, they’re one of the world’s largest food industries. Now, they are planning to soon reestablish one of their previous location in Columbia, South Carolina. In order to do this, they plan to invest a total of $55 million toward the project. This will also create 330 new jobs in Richland County as well. So this will be a great addition to this Right to Work economy!
From Area Development Magazine:
“We’re pleased to bring operations back to Columbia and are very grateful for the strong state and local support we’ve received for this project. Once operational, this new facility will help us meet growing demand from our retail customers with high-quality, pre-cut, pre-packaged fresh beef and pork,” said Tyson Fresh Meats (the beef and pork subsidiary of Tyson Foods) Senior Vice President and General Manager, Portioned Protein Innovation Team, Nate Hodne.
“When a company decides to invest in South Carolina, it speaks volumes about our business environment and workforce. I am excited to see what the future has in store for Tyson Foods and their revamped operations in Richland County,” Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt said.AREA DEVELOPMENT MAGAZINE
