Nebraska might be well known as the corn and beef state, but Nebraska’s poultry industry has something to crow about. Within the last 24 months, Nebraska has celebrated announcements by such entities as Costco/Lincoln Premium Poultry, Hybrid Turkeys and Hendrix Genetics.
Their expansions and location investments illustrate the state’s attractiveness to agriculture industries. And such attractions will be the focus for Nebraska’s booth at the world’s largest annual poultry, meat and feed industry event: the International Production and Processing Expo (IPPE), Jan. 30 – Feb. 1, in Atlanta, GA.
In particular, businesses coming to Nebraska benefit from:
- A positive and progressive business climate,
- Competitive labor and energy costs,
- A central location,
- Access to raw materials/agricultural products, and
- A productive and well-educated labor force.
The latest study, “Nebraska Profit Opportunities for Food Manufacturing,” will also be released at IPPE, demonstrating why expanding or relocating in Nebraska makes sense. To obtain a copy of the study visit us at booth #B6174 at IPPE or by visiting sites.nppd.com.
“Agriculture and ag-related industries are key drivers of Nebraska’s economy,” said Rick Nelsen, Senior Economic Development Consultant. “NPPD will partner with the Nebraska Department of Economic Development, Nebraska Department of Agriculture, the Alliance for the Future of Agriculture in Nebraska and several of our communities to promote our service territory as a location for these types of businesses. Come see us in Atlanta and let’s ruffle some feathers.”
