The first line is expected to begin production this fall with the expansion set to be completed in the summer of 2023.

“We’re thrilled to celebrate the expansion of our Caseyville prepared foods plant, creating new job opportunities for those in the community and keeping ease and efficiency in mind for our current team members,” said Noelle O’Mara, group president, Prepared Foods, Tyson Foods. “With automated warehousing and robotics at the heart of the project, we’re looking forward to its full completion.”

The project will be completed in phases with the majority of work being complete by summer 2023. The Caseyville plant currently produces Hillshire Farm and Jimmy Dean products and the 170,000 square foot expansion will specifically allow a larger production of grab-n-go snacking and breakfast items.
