Pilgrim's pride may close another plant
Pilgrim's Pride has informed managers and workers at
its El Dorado plant that the facility may shut down, unless the company sees
improvements in quality and a return on its investment.
Over 1,600 people work at a processing plant, a feed mill and a hatchery in Union County owned by Pilgrim's Pride. According to company spokesman Ray Atkinson, there is no timetable for the plant to turn itself around, but there isn't much time.
"This is an extremely serious situation in El Dorado. We don't want to close that complex, but unless there are immediate changes that will be our only option," Atkinson said.
The assessment at El Dorado is part of that review, Atkinson said.
