Koch Foods to Expand Gainesville Plant


Koch Foods intends to expand a processing plant erected in the 1960s and acquired in 2002.  The Gainesville Planning and Appeals Board permitted the project that will be subject to final approval by the City Council of Gainesville on December 7th.


The land that will be used to expand the plant has been rezoned to heavy commercial and Koch will erect an additional 90,000 square feet for poultry processing and deboning, 24,000 square feet of office space and 63,000 square feet for cold storage. Ancillary projects will include parking, truck bays and loading docks.  Proposed updates and the expansion will double production volume and will generate additional jobs.
