Chicken processor plans to hire 150 in Carthage



CARTHAGE, Miss. (AP) - A new wholesale company that includes some Georgia partners will invest more than $2 million and hire 150 people to process chicken in Leake County, Miss.

Pearl River Foods will buy chicken, process it into breasts and tenders, and sell it to other companies.

The Mississippi Development Authority will contribute $1.5 million in federal community development money to improve a building that Pearl River Foods will lease from Leake County. The county will provide $170,000 for infrastructure improvements.
