Hormel Foods plans to crank out more bacon

Dold Foods Facility
The company plans to invest $132 million in new bacon processing facility.

Hormel Foods Corp. plans to produce more bacon at its Dold Foods Facility. The $50 million construction project will add 156,000 square feet pork processing facility in Wichita, Kan.

The company plans to invest $82 million in new machinery and equipment over the next five years and add 400 more jobs. The plant currently employs 275 people.

The expansion plan requires approval of an incentives package by Wichita’s City Council on Aug. 1. Hormel would get at least a 10-year tax exemption on the new facility, worth about $1.1 million in the first year, report local media sources.

Dold Foods joined the Hormel Foods family in 1984. They produce a variety of retail bacon and food service layout bacon items and are a large contributor to the overall bacon production for Hormel Foods.
