The Naeve Family, a fifth generation farm, plans to build a beef processing plant in Camanche, Iowa. The facility, which will include a retail location to sell products processed onsite, is expected to create roughly 50 new jobs.
The state-of-the-art plant will incorporate the latest technology in terms of sanitation, processing and waste management. The location will provide locally raised products to local consumers, retailers, restaurants, grocery stores and food distributors. The plant will also offer custom processing and packing to farmers all across the Midwest.
“It is important that we provide employees with excellent training and a quality, clean and open work area with COVID-19 guidelines in mind,” stated Andrew Naeve, President of Naeve Family Beef. He added that “Camanche Mayor Trevor Willis, Camanche City Administrator Andrew Kida, and Andy Sokolovich of the Clinton Regional Development Corporation (CRDC) have been great partners in getting this project off the ground.”
“The Greater Clinton Region continues to grow, attracting a wide range of industries. We are grateful to the Naeve family and the Iowa Economic Development Authority for bringing this project to our region. Moving forward, we will assist the Naeves with identifying a quality workforce. Thank you for choosing Camanche,” Erin M. Cole, President & CEO, Clinton Regional Development Corporation.
The region is home to dozens of manufacturing companies, including ADM, LyondellBasell, Custom-Pak, Nestle Purina PetCare Company, Collis LLC and many others.
