In the fall of 2000, Premium Standard Farms purchased The Lundy
Packing Company. Premium Standard Farms' processing operation is located in Clinton, N.C.
The 800,000 square foot facility can process fresh pork and further processed items such as bacon, sausage, loins,
hams, ribs, butts and picnics. Ready-to-eat products for restaurants and consumers are also made at this facility. The facility can process approximately 2.6 million pigs annually. Currently 9,100 head per day
A $38 million construction and renovation project was completed in January 2002. New cut floor and cold storage, and
distribution areas went online providing more room in the existing facility.Two highlights of the renovations included a new state of the art blast chill system and the installation of a Butina C02 anesthetizing system.
Improvements like these provide greater operational efficiency, higher qulity products and more export opportunites
to important markets.
