Chicken plant gets federal help

January 13, 2005

Colquitt County - A chicken processing plant that's generating 1400 jobs in Moultrie will get federal help.

Sanderson Farms has already started building the chicken plant in the woods off Highway 133.

The US Secretary of Commerce will give a $1.2 million dollar Economic Development Administration grant to help build a wastewater main.

Adel and Moultrie were already awarded more than three million dollars in One Georgia EDGE checks to buy land for Sanderson Farms.
