US-based Standard Meat Company has acquired a fifth protein processing plant in Texas in order to meet “growing volume demands”.

The 166,000 square-foot factory is based in Fort Worth, near where the meat business is headquartered. The company purchased the building for development in 2023 and has plans to install a sous vide line.

Standard Meat did not disclose financial or capacity details behind the new facility.

Expansion capacity at the new site will “allow for additional sous vide lines, or other production lines as needed to explore future technologies and address emerging opportunities”, according to a statement.

“At Standard Meat, we don’t demand that our clients choose from a fixed menu of products and services,” said CEO and co-president Ben Rosenthal.

“Instead, we look for out-of-the-box solutions for each client’s unique needs. With this new plant, we’ll have even more flexibility to introduce cutting-edge technologies and processes, doing everything we can do to drive business forward for our clients.”

Founded in 1935, Standard Meat operates through foodservice and retail channels from four – soon to be five – north Texas plants. The company supplies restaurants, supermarkets and meal-kit companies with customised beef, pork and poultry, along with packaging and culinary solutions.

Rosenthal added: “With the location of our fifth plant here in the historic Stockyards area, we’re not just constructing a facility, we’re revitalising a piece of our city’s industrial legacy. At Standard Meat, we’re all-in on Fort Worth and on bringing new investment and jobs to the place we’ve always called home.”

The business declined to comment further on the expansion.

In 2022, the meat processor acquired US private-label sausage and meatball maker Syracuse Sausage for an undisclosed fee.
