Moultrie- South Georgia could soon get a huge economic boost.

A poultry company could expand into Southwest Georgia, bringing 1,700 jobs with.

Monday night, representatives from Sanderson Farms met with area farmers and agribusinessmen to explain how their company works and how they could grow their business here. If the company locates in south Georgia, it could have an annual payroll of more than $58 million.

"And they think there is a good opportunity for growers and good geographic location for them to service their existing customers," said Darrell Moore, president of the Moultrie-Colquitt Chamber of Commerce.

Company leaders will hold another meeting Tuesday night at Spence Field in Moultrie at 7 p.m. They're trying to find out if they could get more than 100 chicken growers in the region before they decide whether to do business here.
