Koch Foods Inc. will invest more than $40 million to build a feed mill in Roanoke, Ala., according to a report in Meatingplace. The feed mill will support its Pine Mountain, Ga., poultry processing plant and employ 27 full-time employees and 19 truck drivers, the Randolph County Economic Development Authority (RCEDA) said in a news release. The new feed mill is expected to result in the development of new broiler houses resulting in $95 million of capital spending along with new jobs, property tax and sales tax into the local economy.

Mark Kaminsky, chief operating officer of Koch Foods, said the project will allow for a more efficient live operation and help facilitate future expansion.
