BPI Will Re-Open Kansas Plant

Some good news today from Dakota Dunes based Beef Products Incorporated. The company will re-open one of the three beef plants it closed in the aftermath of the "Pink Slime" scandal in 2012. An increase in orders for BPI's lean, finely-textured beef product has led it to re-open its facility in Garden City, Kansas, and the hiring of 40 to 45 new full-time employees For the moment, the Kansas plant will collect and prepare beef for BPI, not make LFTB itself, but might expand operations in the future.
