Florida Company Invests in Mills County, IA Beef Plant

(Des Moines) — Another major investor is pitching in on a proposed beef processing facility in Mills County.

Officials with Cattlemen’s Heritage Beef Company Monday announced that Karis Capital of Naples, Florida is investing $150 million in the company’s planned facility on a 132-acre parcel of land near the intersection of Interstate 29 and Bunge Road just south of the Pottawattamie-Mills County line. In a press release, Cattlemen’s Heritage Principal Developer Chad Tentinger states the investment represents a critical milestone, allowing the company to break ground later this year.
