The Farmland Foods plant in the western Iowa town of Denison is reportedly expanding, perhaps hiring on hundreds of new workers, but questions remain about the specifics of the plan. Denison Mayor Ken Livingston says it’s an exciting announcement that’s been a long time coming.Livingston says Farmland Foods officials have been meeting with city leaders “in confidence” as the plans for the expanded pork slaughtering and processing plant were being made. One report says the expansion will cost 25-million dollars and could mean the creation of 220 jobs. Livingston could -not- confirm that. He will only say it represents multi-millions of dollars in investment and significant numbers of jobs. No Farmland Foods officials are commenting about the reported expansion plans.
