Sale of Charles City Processing Plant Contested


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.
