Tyson Fresh Meats to Build Food Production Plant in Utah

The Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED) today announced Tyson Fresh Meats, a subsidiary of Tyson Foods, Inc., will invest almost $300 million to build a food production plant in Utah that will initially provide 800 jobs and is expected to expand to 1,200 positions within three years after opening. It will also add an estimated $27 million in new state tax revenue over the next 10 years.

“We are pleased that Tyson Foods, a Fortune 100 Company, has selected Utah to build its newest facility,” said Val Hale, executive director of GOED. “This well-known company has a long history and great reputation. It will allow them to have better distribution and access to the western states.”

The new facility will be a case ready plant. It will be involved in converting large cuts of beef and pork into steaks, chops, roasts and ground meat that are placed in retail trays, weighed and labeled and then shipped to retailers to be sold through the grocery meat case.
