Smithfield Foods says it plans to expand in Kinston.
The company built a new state-of-the-art facility at the West Industrial Park in 2008, transferring 476 workers from the old plant on West Vernon Avenue.
The Plant in the industrial park was expanded in 2011.
Now Smithfield says it is committed to invest $16-million dollars on this latest expansion.
