July 14, 2010 - A $46-million poultry processing plant is planned for the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia.

The Kentville plant will be jointly owned by Maple Lodge Farms and farmers from Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.

Maple Lodge chief executive Michael Burrows says the operation will ensure the long-term viability of the poultry processing industry in Nova Scotia.

The farmers are making a commitment to ship their birds to the new plant and Maple Lodge will provide national marketing for the processed product.

The new plant in the Kentville Industrial Park is expected to be up and running by the spring of 2012 and will process chickens and turkeys.
