Dakota Provisions, a $120 million state-of-the-art processing plant, was designed with food safety and technological innovation in mind. The plant, located along with the corporate office on a 114-acre site east of Huron, S.D., harvests, debones and cooks turkeys. It has the capacity for 8 million live turkeys per year and produces a complete line of fully cooked turkey, pork, beef and chicken products. Our plant is not just a processing facility; the facility has dedicated research and quality assurance laboratories and kitchens to continually test, develop and monitor our products. All products are geared toward food service, co-manufacturing and niche markets.
Upon opening, the plant employed more than 300 associates and will employ more than 1,000 associates by 2010.
