An international producer and marketer of food and agricultural products is expanding its local operations at its plant in Marshall, Gov. Jay Nixon announced. Cargill Meat Solutions is in the process of expanding its case-ready meat facility with a new production line of value-added food products, a capital investment of more than $15 million that is expected to create 50 new local jobs over the next year.

The Governor made the announcement after touring Cargill’s facility in Marshall, where he was joined by company and community leaders. 

“The Show-Me State’s economy continues to move forward with new jobs, new investments and new opportunities for Missourians,” Gov. Nixon said. “Here in Missouri, we’ve kept our commitment to balancing the budget every year, holding the line on taxes and investing in our schools and workforce. As a result, Missouri remains a top state for companies to start, locate or expand their businesses.”

To assist Cargill Meat Solutions in moving forward with its growth plans, the company could be eligible for a strategic economic incentive package from the state of Missouri if it meets the program’s strict job creation and investment requirements.
