Pilgrim’s Pride Will Expand Cold Spring Plant

Pilgrim’s Pride is expanding its Cold Spring, Minn. plant in a move expected to increase jobs and give central Minnesota farmers a larger market for their chickens.

The $75-million expansion is expected to be complete in early 2021, adding 50,000 square feet to the existing processing plant.

Pilgrim’s, based in Colorado, said the added capacity could create up to 130 more jobs. It now employs 1,200 people at the plant.
