The expansion will increase production capacity of chicken products for foodservice customers such as restaurants and schools.
“The demand for convenient, high-quality chicken products continues to grow and there is no brand more trusted than Tyson, we are pleased to invest in our business as we invest in the great state of Mississippi. We’d like to thank the Mississippi Development Authority and Warren County for their assistance and support of this project,” David Bray, Group President, Poultry for Tyson Foods noted.
Mississippi Development Authority is providing assistance for infrastructure improvements as an incentive. Warren County and Entergy Mississippi are also assisting with the project. The expansion is expected to be complete by next summer.
“Tyson is a company that is well-known for providing top-quality chicken and other food products to consumers, and Mississippi is proud to play a role in the company’s continued success. The latest expansion by Tyson in Vicksburg demonstrates how Mississippi’s hard-working citizens and robust portfolio of competitive advantages combine to ensure companies enjoy long-term success and growth in the Magnolia State,” noted MDA Interim Executive Director Laura Hipp.
