Concordia, KS- Tyson today announced that they will be expanding their poultry unit in Tennessee with a similar facility to the one they have indicated they want to open in Kansas. This comes at a time when Tyson continues to move forward with their plans to continue evaluating Kansas for a second fresh tray pack plant in Kansas.
The Kansas Department of Agriculture released the following statement:
Congratulations to Tyson Foods on your new expansion plans and to the state of Tennessee for the agricultural growth you’re welcoming in your state. Consumer demand drives growth in the food and agriculture industry, and we have been aware throughout our own discussions with Tyson Foods that their expansion plans included multiple facilities in more than one state, so this announcement was not unexpected. We look forward to continuing to work with Tyson Foods as they further evaluate expansion of their poultry business unit growth opportunities in Kansas.
CloudCorp and the 81 Corridor are continuing their efforts to bring Tyson to Cloud County and the region. “We understand that Tyson needs to expand their infrastructure in order to keep up with demand,” said Ashley Hutchinson, Executive Director of CloudCorp. “We hope to show them in the coming months that Cloud County and the 81 Corridor are eager and ready for the opportunity to partner with Tyson.”
