Peco Foods expands its Newark, Ark., feed mill, poised for growth
Poultry producer’s $14 million expansion includes new pellet line, improved grain receiving and an additional 2 million bushels of storage
Peco Foods expanded its reach into Arkansas with the assets it acquired from Townsends, Inc. in 2011. This move made Peco the 8th largest U.S. poultry producer. The Tuscaloosa-based company currently operates five kill plants, five hatcheries, five feed mills and two further processing facilities in Mississippi, Alabama and Arkansas.
