Golden State Foods to invest $40 million in Opelika meat plant

OPELIKA, Alabama — California-based Golden State Foods plans to invest between $40 million and $45 million to open a state-of-the art meat processing facility in the Northeast Opelika Industrial Park, creating 173 jobs.

“After careful consideration, we selected Opelika as the site for our new facility based on the strategic location along I-85, the available workforce and the atmosphere of industry and government cooperation,” said Wayne Morgan, corporate vice president of the company’s meat group.

Opelika Mayor Gary Fuller, Alabama Commerce Secretary Greg Canfield and Alabama Speaker of the House Mike Hubbard joined officials of Golden State Foods (GSF) in making the announcement on Tuesday.

“Alabama continues to attract great companies like Golden State Foods,” Commerce Secretary Canfield said. “We are glad to support their growth here in Opelika.”
