Perdue Farms Plans to Close Booth Creek Natural Chicken Plant in Pennsylvania
Jan 16 14
Perdue Farms is set to close its Booth Creek Natural Chicken (BCNC) plant in Fredericksburg, Pennsylvania on or shortly after March 14, 2014, to better serve customers for its organic and no-antibiotics-ever brands. The company stated that lease for a distribution center in Denver that serves the BCNC plant will not be renewed and the closure-affected employees will have an opportunity to transfer to the company's other facilities. The changes will not affect the company's organic live production in Pennsylvania and the company will continue organic chicken production with the local farmers, USDA certified organic feed ingredient suppliers and organic feed manufacturing, and local hatchery. Perdue intends to work with other Pennsylvanian growers to move them to organic production, and it is also contracting farmers in the region as it develops a breeder operation in the state.
