American Foods Group To Establish Beef Plant


American Foods Group, based in Green Bay, WI., has secured financing for a beef processing plant to be located in Warren County, MO.  The plant will extend over 500,000 square feet and will have a capacity of 2,400 head per working day and will employ 1,300. Despite concern and opposition to the plant that was announced in November 2021, final approval was granted in May 2022 by the Warren County Commission.


Steve Van Lannen, CEO of American Foods Group, stated, “The state of Missouri and the people of Warren County have been outstanding partners and we look forward to becoming a member of their community.”  He added, “Consumer demand for beef is growing and we are investing in this project to fill an industry need for additional hook space while meeting the needs of our partners, customers and consumers.”
