Tyson Foods building $136 Million processing plant, 85 jobs in Green Forest
GREEN FOREST, Ark. — Tyson Foods Inc. will build a $136 million processing plant in Green Forest. The 200,000-square-foot facility will be across the street from an existing Tyson plant.
Tyson says the project will bring about 85 jobs to the county, where it already employs more than 2,600 people; it hopes to complete the plant in late 2017. Green Forest Mayor Charles Reece said the company plans to break ground in July.
