Daily's currently operates additional plants in Missoula, Montana, where it was founded in 1893, and Salt Lake City. Expanding to St. Joseph will put the company in closer proximity to its suppliers and strengthen its position to expand its customer base.

Using only fresh-trimmed pork bellies, the company serves a wide variety of high quality items including honey cured bacon, apple wood smoked bacon, naturally smoked hams and breakfast sausages. Daily's Premium Meats is jointly owned by Triumph Foods and Seaboard Foods.

To assist Daily's Premium Meats with its expansion to St. Joseph, the Missouri Department of Economic Development has offered a strategic incentive package that the company can receive if its meets strict job creation and investment criteria.

Governor Jay Nixon said, "A strategic central location and experienced workforce continue to accelerate growth in Missouri's consumer food products sector.
