Update on Tyson Foods Poultry Processing Plant

Tyson Foods has announced plans to construct a fresh-pack poultry processing plant in Tennessee. According to Trisha Purdon, Montgomery County Action Council (MCAC) Executor Director, this announcement does not change Montgomery County’s opportunity as one of three finalists for a Tyson plant in Kansas.

“Tyson has indicated that due to the increasing demand for fresh-pack chicken products they are still interested in establishing a poultry presence in Kansas,” said Purdon. The Kansas Department of Agriculture has issued a statement saying they have been aware Tyson Foods plans included expansion projects for multiple facilities in more than one state. “This announcement was not unexpected,” said Purdon.

MCAC and the City of Coffeyville will present a final proposal to Tyson Foods at the beginning of 2018.
