ROANOKE, Alabama — Koch Foods Inc. plans to invest nearly $40.5 million to build a feed mill in Randolph County that will produce prepared feeds and feeding ingredients to support the growth of a processing plant in nearby Pine Mountain, Georgia.
Marilyn Lott, executive director of the Randolph County Economic Development Authority (RCEDA), said Koch Foods will hire 27 full-time employees, plus an additional 19 truck drivers, generating a total annual payroll of nearly $2 million.
“Koch Foods’ decision to locate their world-class facility here is great news for Randolph County,” she said.
Koch (pronounced “Cook”) Foods is one of the nation’s largest poultry producers. RCEDA projects that the new feed mill in Roanoke will spur the development of up to 190 new growing houses by contracted local farmers.
