Mountaire Farms Wants $200K in State Grants

Posted:

DOVER, Del. - Poultry processing company Mountaire Farms of Delaware is seeking more than $200,000 in taxpayer grants to expand its business.

Mountaire is asking for a state Strategic Fund Performance grant of up to $87,759 and a state Strategic Fund Capital Expenditure grant of up to $129,000.

The company plans to use the funds to expand its processing plant in Millsboro.

Mountaire's request for state funds was one of several to be considered by the Delaware Council on Development Finance at its meeting Monday in Dover.

Three years ago, the Delaware Economic Development Office offered Mountaire a $787,500 Strategic Fund grant to assist with the development and construction of a new facility to recover unused protein from processing operations for use in making commercial pet food.
