Cargill Expands Missouri Meat Operation

Cargill Meat Solutions announced plans to expand its Marshall, Minn., case-ready meat facility with a new production line of value-added food products. The $15.8 million capital investment is expected to create 50 new local jobs over the next year.

To assist Cargill Meat Solutions in moving forward with its growth plans, the company could be eligible for a strategic economic incentive package from the state of Missouri if it meets the program’s strict job creation and investment requirements.

“We are thrilled to be expanding our food production capabilities at our case-ready meat processing plant in Marshall,” says Jody Horner, president of Cargill’s North American case-ready meat business based in Wichita, Kan. “This is an excellent example of public-private collaboration that generates the type of investment to expand business, add jobs and grow the state’s economy. This is a wonderful day for the state of Missouri, the Marshall community and Cargill.”

Last September, Cargill Meat Solutions added a new production line at its Marshall facility for value-added products, including ready-to-cook beef, pork and chicken items to be sold in retail supermarkets and stores across the United States.

Cargill Meat Solutions is a unit of Cargill International, Minnetonka, Minn., a multinational producer and marketer of food, agricultural, financial and industrial products and services.
