Update: New $43 mln poultry processing plant

A joint venture between Keystone Foods and Lopez Foods has formed a company to supply processed chicken to restaurants and food stores.

Additionally, the partnership will build a $43mln new plant - Rancho Poultry LLC will be in a 100,000-sf facility on 25 acres.
It has been reported that the new poultry processing plant will have 2 lines that will season and cook up to 60 mln pounds of chicken per year. The plant, which will be the main supplier for McDonald's, will receive birds shipped from a slaughter house in Albany.
It is further reported that the plant will be completed in January 2010. A third product line is also being considered, and the site may ultimately employ about 300 people.
