Tyson Foods Incorporated decided today September fifth two thousand fifteen to build a three hundred twenty million dollar chicken processing plant. As a raw food vegan, I still monitor food such as animal meat and processed food. This chicken plant will be built in Northeastern Kansas that will allegedly employ one thousand six hundred employees.
Tonganoxie Kansas will be the site of this huge chicken plant. This city is located in Leavenworth County. A feed mill, hatchery, and plant is part of this facility.
Local chicken farmers and ranchers will contract with Tyson Foods. This company claims that demand for chicken is why they are building another poultry plant. Animals being butchered at this plant won’t begin operation until two thousand nineteen.
This chicken will be sold in retail stores nation wide.
“More people want fresh food and as one of the world’s leading protein companies, we’re well-positioned to provide it. We believe this new operation, which will incorporate the latest production technology, will enable us to meet the sustained growth in consumer demand for fresh chicken.”
One million two hundred fifty thousand chickens will get murdered at this plant. I am a raw food vegan, so I will use strong language. Tyson Foods claims that this will bring in one hundred fifty million dollars to Kansas per year.
Local and state government bureaucrat’s of course had their say regarding this plant. Tyson Foods is going to purchase around three hundred acres near Tonganoxie, Kansas. Construction will begin later this fall.
Food and agriculture supposedly accounts for forty five percent of Kansas’ eCONomy. I wonder how much money is spent on raw fruits and vegetables in this state? I guess animal processing plants are here to stay.
As long as I still have access to raw fruits and vegetables, then let them eat chicken.
