Deal: Koch Foods to Create 750 New Jobs in Harris County

Posted March 28, 2013    

 Gov. Nathan Deal announced that Koch Foods will expand its poultry processing facility in Hamilton, creating 750 new jobs and investing $49 million. Koch Foods is one of only five vertically integrated food processors in the nation.  Koch purchased an existing Cagle’s facility in 2012, retaining 350 jobs. During a two-phase expansion, the company added 350 jobs last year. This second phase, incorporating two new processing lines, will create an additional 750 new jobs. Prior to Koch’s acquisition of the former Cagle’s facility in June, the workforce had been reduced by 50 percent since 2010.

Here is the Koch Foods press release out of the Governor's office.
