Land O’ Lakes Plans Feed Storage Facility In Roanoke, Virginia

One of America's premier agribusiness and food companies, Land O'Lakes Inc., will build a state-of-the-art animal feed manufacturing facility in Roanoke, Virginia. The company plans to begin operation in December 2018.

"The southeast region is the single biggest growth opportunity for our Purina animal nutrition business. While the new facility is being constructed, we will serve our important current and future customers from product made at our existing facilities and distributed through warehouses at Virginia and Kentucky," said Beth Ford, Group Executive Vice President & COO, Land O'Lakes, Inc.

"We will continue to apply the strong research capabilities of our 100+ Ph.D. scientists at our research facility outside of St. Louis, Missouri, to bring cutting-edge horse, cattle and other animal feed products to customers in the Southeastern United States,” she added.

Although it had been announced in November 2016 that Land O'Lakes had entered into a Letter of Intent to purchase the feed assets of Southern States Cooperative, "the company is looking to move more quickly in this strategic market than the discussions with Southern States allowed," Ford added.
