A new House of David kosher chicken processing plant will be completed by March in Tulare, Calif., visaliatimesdelta.com reported. The 60,000-square-foot plant, whose groundbreaking took place on September 9, will process 40,000 chickens daily.
It will initially employ 70 people with plans to add 50 more later. All employees will be local, except for a four-person management team and 12 workers who will handle slaughtering duties, Hillel Shamam, Southern California businessman and owner of the plant was quoted as saying.
The plant will use kosher standards. No injured, unhealthy, overgrown or undergrown chicken will be slaughtered, Shamam added.
