Morrilton Packing Co., the parent company of Petit Jean Meats, said Monday that it will invest $2.1 million in its Morrilton facility to add capacity "for current and future products," a move it said will create 34 jobs.

The company, which sells to retail and food service customers in Arkansas and Texas, said the investment will bring employment at the plant to "more than 100." It said the project will accommodate a new line of snack sticks "with large growth potential."

"Morrilton Packing Company has called Arkansas home for almost a century," David Ruff, Morrilton Packing's president and CEO, said in a news release. "The Petit Jean Meats brand is known throughout the state for its taste and quality. This expansion would not be possible without our loyal customers and our dedicated employees who believe in this company."
