Sale of Charles City Processing Plant Contested

09/06/2021

The Simply Essentials plant in Charles City Iowa represented 500 jobs that were lost when the plant ceased operation in August 2019.  Executors subsequently accepted a $9.5 billion bid from Pure Prairie Farms.  Wincorp International, controlled by the Jamaica Broilers Group of Companies is contesting the sale and has now offered $10 million for the assets.

 

Over two decades the Simply Essentials plant has had a number of owners and has processed layer culls and small numbers of broilers but has never been a viable enterprise.
