Iowa may see 4-million layer farm in JV with Israeli producer

 
 

Primera Foods Corporation, a subsidiary of Cham Foods of Israel, has signed an agreement with Centre Fresh Egg Farm, Sioux Centre, Iowa, to study the feasibility of building an integrated egg laying and liquid egg processing farm in the general area of Britt, Iowa.

 

If the investigation is successful in finding suitable land, reasonable construction costs and financing, a 4-million-layer capacity egg farm would be built with related feed mill and pullet laying facility.  Center Fresh would supervise the construction and later the management of the project.

 

Primera recently purchased and is in the process of renovating a facility in Britt for the processing of food products based on liquid eggs.

 

It is anticipated that a portion of the output of such a facility would be dedicated to the Britt, Iowa, facility of Primera and the rest of the liquid eggs would be marketed to Centre Fresh's customers.
