New Simplot Plant Begins Operations

From Staff And Wire Reports

Sweet corn processed at a new frozen-vegetable plant here will end up in such places as frozen dinners, fast-food meals and school lunches.

The $32 million J.R. Simplot plant opened last weekend, a couple of weeks later than planned because cool, wet weather slowed the corn harvest, said Simplot operations director Doug Byers.

The delay gave workers extra time to work the bugs out of the state-of-the-art plant’s equipment.
