Kraft Heinz’s plant in Kirksville, Missouri has doubled its workforce to 900 employees. The move comes after the plant was expanded from previously 188,000 square feet to 450,000 square feet.
Of the 900 employees, some 860 are regular employees and the remaining 40 are temporary employees hired through an employment service.
The plant is the sole Kraft Heinz bologna producer in North America, and also produces square cut ham, cotto salami, round white turkey.
