Pilgrim's plans to shut down its poultry rendering plant in El Dorado, Ark. The work from the closing plant will be moved to an existing Pilgrim's plant in Texas, the company told news sources.

When the rendering plant closes, Pilgrim's will no longer have a presence in the Arkansas community of El Dorado. Pilgrim's previously had a poultry plant in El Dorado, but the poultry plant closed in 2009.


The Pilgrim's rendering plant employed about 30 people.
