Prestage Foods of Iowa
Prestage Foods of Iowa is the newest addition to the Prestage Farms family of companies.
We are investing in Iowa because we believe:
- It is good for Iowa. Iowa is the nation’s top producer of pork and produces more pigs than it can process. This new plant will keep the value from processing these pigs in Iowa and it will create more than 900 full-time jobs.
- It is good for agriculture. We plan to buy 40 percent of the hogs from local, independent farmers and look forward to being a new marketing option for them. The economics of supply and demand should dictate better market prices for live hogs.
- It is good for our family-owned and run business. Our ultimate goal is to raise top-quality, homegrown pork at reasonable prices while being a preferred employer in the area and practicing the best environmental stewardship.
