3G Processing, a food processor, is investing $6 million and creating 90 jobs in Mountain Grove, Missouri. The company will renovate a steel plant for a facility that will turn food waste into animal feed.
"With 90 local jobs being created, this is great news for the economy of a and the surrounding area," said Governor Jay Nixon.
3G will receive nearly $306,000 in Enhanced Enterprise Zone (EEZ) tax credits towards the project. The company will intake more than a million pounds of food waste daily to turn into feed, primarily for chickens. Some of its biggest clients include Tyson, ConAgra, and General Mills.
