Farmland Foods is expanding its pork processing facility in Denison, Iowa. The plant produces fresh pork, hams and bacon.

Construction is underway on a 165,000-square-foot addition to the Denison facility, which will allow for additional processing capacity for smoked sausage, ham slicing and hot dogs. The expansion, which should be finished by late summer 2007, also will provide space to process an additional 1,150 hogs per day, raising the plant capacity to 10,350 from the current 9,200 hogs per day.

Farmland Foods’ expansion will provide added market capacity to the region’s pork producers, which is a benefit with larger hog supplies.
