West Liberty Foods Announces 13 Million Dollar Expansion

October 7, 2013

West Liberty Foods, L.L.C., a co-packer, private label manufacturer and foodservice supplier of sliced deli meats, and fully cooked IQF products, has announced plans for a 13 million dollar expansion slated for the Tremonton, Utah facility.

This addition will add 3,750 square feet of welfare and mechanical space to the 34,000 square foot addition that was completed in August, 2013. Target completion for this latest expansion is December, 2013.

The addition became necessary as a result of increased sales volumes for West Liberty Foods. The expansion will house production capabilities for Pulled Pork and Pulled Chicken products, bringing an estimated 12 million pounds of retail and food service manufacturing capabilities to the facility.

“We are excited to add these new products and capabilities to our portfolio,” said Ed Garrett, president and CEO for West Liberty Foods, in a press release. “It’s through the partnerships with our vendors and customers that has made this expansion possible.”

This will be the fourth addition to the facility since it opened in 2007.
