New Turkey Processing Plant Brings 600 Jobs to Knox County

Last updated on Friday, December 23, 2011

(Vincennes) - A new turkey processing plant will bring 600 jobs to Knox County as Farbest Foods invests $69 million.

The jobs will be added as the 220,000 square-foot facility is constructed. It is expected to be open in 2014.

"Farbest's decision to locate another facility in Indiana reaffirms the confidence that flourishing companies have in our prosperous business climate," said Gov. Mitch Daniels. "Thanks to our expansive infrastructure combined with the ability to reach 80 percent of the nation's population within a day's drive, Indiana is continually winning opportunities to bring more jobs to hardworking Hoosiers."

The Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered Farbest up to $2.8 million in conditional tax credits as well as $200,000 in training grants.
