Perdue Jobs Move to Bertie County

The Perdue plant in Bertie County is getting more work. That's because a Perdue Chicken processing plant that employs 27 people in Fayetteville is closing. Its production will be moved to the plant in Lewiston. Employees at the Fayetteville plant are being offered transfers. Perdue is Bertie County's largest employer. Officials say the production move is an isolated action and is not part of a larger shift in operations.
