Farbest Foods is budgeting $12.8 million for an expansion of its Huntingburg, Ind., turkey processing plant to expand and automate the deboning room and increase output.
The 22,000-square-foot addition will enable Farbest to transition from manual turkey deboning to a more automated, machine-driven process, according to Stellar, the design, engineering and construction firm handling the project.
The plant was built in 1969 and expanded in 1986 and again in 2008. The project began in September 2021 and is on track to be completed this July. Farbest supplies raw, fresh and frozen turkey products to customers around the world.
