Construction of a Farbest Foods turkey plant in Vincennes, Ind., is ahead of schedule, with production expected to begin in December. In preparation for the opening, Farbest Foods is interviewing candidates for jobs at the plant.

The first of a series of job fairs has been conducted, according to news reports. The Farbest Foods plant will initially employ about 300 people.

The company in 2011 announced its plans to invest $69 million on a 220,000 square-foot building that will sit on 100 acres of land.
