BURLEY, Idaho—Officials with McCain Foods USA have announced plans for a major overhaul of their Burley 2 potato processing plant.
The two-year renovation is scheduled to commence this fall and is intended to improve the plant's efficiency. Company officials would not disclose the estimated cost of the project.
"Although the renovation won't increase the plant's capacity or employment, it will position us for greater competitiveness by adding state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment and updated infrastructure," Burley plant manager Jeff McCray said in a press release.
