Bacon is big business, and it will be the main focus of a new processing plant that was announced by Daily’s Premium Meats on March 31.
Work is expected to begin on the St. Joseph, Mo., plant this summer with operations starting May 2016. The $41.5 million plant will focus on producing sliced-to-order naturally hardwood smoked bacon and employ about 200 people. Daily’s, owned by Seaboard Foods and Triumph Foods, will build the plant across the road from Triumph Foods’ St. Joseph, Mo., fresh pork processing plant.
Daily’s was founded in 1893 by John R. Daily in Missoula, Mont. The company currently operates bacon processing plants in Missoula and Salt Lake City, and markets and sells a variety of processed pork items from signature honey cured bacon to applewood smoked bacon to naturally smoked hams to breakfast sausages.
