SEWARD, NEB. (AP) — An Omaha company intends to build a plant in Seward, creating nearly 100 new jobs.

Scoular announced Wednesday that a subsidiary company will produce freeze-dried protein ingredients for pet food at the plant, which is expected to open by fall 2020.

Scoular is employee-owned and buys, sells, stores and transports grain, feed ingredients and food ingredients.

A groundbreaking ceremony is planned for June to mark the start of construction on the $50 million project.

Scoular says Seward was chosen in part because of the available labor pool.
