NEW CASTLE, Indiana — Boar's Head Brand plans to build a meat processing plant in central Indiana that company executives say will create more than 200 new jobs over the next few years.
The Sarasota, Florida-headquartered maker of premium delicatessen meats and cheeses announced Friday that it will build the new plant on 66 acres at an industrial park in New Castle.
The plant about 40 miles east of Indianapolis is expected to be operational by early spring of 2016 and will produce turkey, ham and chicken delicatessen products.
Boar's Head Brand plans to begin hiring workers for the next plant next year.
New Castle-Henry County Economic Development Corp. President Corey Murphy told The Courier-Times that the project includes an initial investment of $80 million.
