Tauherr Poultry has made plans to open a halal-certified poultry processing plant in Princess Anne, Md., bringing 15 to 25 jobs to the area.

Tauherr is looking to serve a niche market, said part owner Terrence Nichols. The plant is still in the preliminary stages; according to Nichols, it may be six months to a year before the plant is up and running.
