Wholestone Farms, the farmer-owned US pork processor, has outlined plans for a new production site.

The Nebraska-based business, set up in 2017, is to build a new facility in neighbouring South Dakota.

Wholestone Farms said the project is estimated to cost US$500m. The pork harvest and processing plant will be located in Sioux Falls.

The company is owned by 200 farmers based in the upper Midwest.

Just Food has asked Wholestone Farms for further details on the investment.

A year after formation, Wholestone Farms bought its pork-processing facility in Nebraska from Hormel Foods, the US manufacturer.
