T&E Meats to expand, employ in Harrisonburg, Va.
The Commonwealth of Virginia is partnering with the City of Harrisonburg and T&E Meats on this project through the Governor’s Agriculture and Forestry Industries Development (AFID) Fund.
T&E Meats will invest in the building improvements and equipment to expand its existing U.S. Department of Agriculture-inspected meat processing facility.
T&E Meats will fill an important meat processing role for producers across the state, processing meat for private labels, in addition to providing custom processing services to larger customers.
T&E Meats serves more than 250 customers each year and maintains approximately 80 individual independent farm labels at a time. The company will increase its capacity by one third and source 90 percent of its inputs from Virginia-grown livestock producers. ■
