Case Farms plans to build a wastewater treatment facility at its site in Dudley, North Carolina.
The company was recently awarded $103,565 in incentives from the Wayne County Commission, which will be awarded in the form of tax rebates over a five-year-period, reported the Goldsboro News-Argus. The incentives were approved by a unanimous vote.
The wastewater treatment plant project is valued at $6.1 million, and once it is completed, three new employees will be hired.
Case Farms is headquartered in Troutman, North Carolina, and operates four slaughter plants, one further processing plant and one cooking plant. It is the 14th largest broiler company in the United States, having produced 18.9 million pounds of ready-to-cook chicken on a weekly basis in 2016, according to the WATTAgNet Top Poultry Companies Database.
