A meat packaging company in business for more than 100 years in western Kentucky is celebrating an expansion that will add dozens of jobs.
Specialty Foods Group Inc. invested $2.6 million into the project and will create at least 65 new jobs.
The company's portfolio of brands includes Kentucky Legend, Field, Fischer's, Kentuckian Gold and Mickelberry's.
Gov. Steve Beshear joined Owensboro-area officials for a ribbon cutting for the expanded facility on Thursday.
The project included updating equipment to increase production capacity.
Specialty Foods opened its manufacturing facility in Owensboro in December 1914. Currently, the company employs 501 people in Kentucky.
