Meat processing company expanding in Harrisonburg
- September 1, 2016
T&E Meats is investing more than $600,000 to expand its meat processing facility in Harrisonburg. The project is expected to create seven new jobs.
Gov. Terry McAuliffe approved a $50,000 grant from the Agriculture and Forestry Industries Development (AFID) Fund, which Harrisonburg will match with local funds.
As part of the deal, T&E Meats has agreed to increase its capacity by one third and source 90 percent of its meat from Virginia livestock producers.
The company will invest in building improvements and equipment in expanding its facility.
T&E Meats will process meat for private labels and also provide custom processing services to larger customers.
