Ky. Food Plant Expanding, Plans to Add 200 Jobs
OWINGSVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A food company in northeastern Kentucky is expanding and planning to add 200 jobs.
Custom Food Products says it is investing $44 million in the expansion project at its Owingsville plant in Bath County.
The company, which is a subsidiary of Idaho-based CTI Foods, processes meats, soups, sauces and tacos for food manufacturers and foodservice chains. CTI acquired the plant last year.
Company CEO Bobby Horowitz says CTI had been planning to grow its operations, and company officials spent time in Owingsville before deciding on the expansion.
A statement from Gov. Steve Beshear's office says the state Economic Development Finance Authority has preliminarily approved the company for tax incentives up to $3 million.
