BPI has announced that it will start collecting fresh beef trimmings at its Garden City, Kansas location, with an anticipated start date of August 18th. The raw material collection is to support BPI’s current Dakota City, Nebraska production operations.

The Garden City facility, which was closed in 2012 after a consumer backlash against lean finely trimmed beef, will be operating two shifts of fresh beef trimmings collection to run in conjunction with Tyson’s production operations. There will also be a third shift for CIP (cleaning). BPI anticipates hiring 40 to 45 full-time employees.

“BPI continues to experience growth and remains confident this growth will continue. Although business conditions are not yet at the point where we can resume lean beef production operations in Garden City, this is certainly a step in the right direction.” said Craig Letch, BPI’s director of food quality & food safety. “As the global demand for quality lean beef continues to rise, BPI is ready to meet that demand by providing consumers high quality, wholesome, safe and nutritious lean beef, just as we have done for decades.”
