Chicken of the Sea on Target
Saturday, 20 February 2010

February 20--  The new Chicken of the Sea tuna plant in Toombs County expects to reach full production capacity by the end of March. 

Toombs County Development Authority board member Wendell Dixon told the board the plant currently has 250 fulltime and another 100 part-time employees.  He says the company so far has spent $13.5 million of its promised $20 million investment in the plant.

The Development Authority also is renewing its contract with Executive Director Bill Mitchell for another two years.  Mitchell was the lead negotiator in the Chicken of the Sea project which is being touted by a national industry and trade magazine as one of the top deals of the year among rural communities.
