ayne Farms, one of the country's largest
poultry companies, is changing quickly
to meet what it anticipates will be the
demands of the future.
Since 2015, it's invested heavily in its infrastructure, launched a line of antibiotic-free (ABF) and
enhanced-welfare chicken, and introduced products for
retail sale. The Oakwood, Georgia, integrated poultry
company's CEO Clint Rivers says the company operated deliberately in order to capitalize on the future
demands of its customers.

Growing poultry output
Wayne Farms LLC is the seventh-largest integrated
poultry company in terms of millions of pounds of
ready-to-cook (RTC) chicken produced per week,
according to WATT Global Media's Top Broiler
Companies data. The company operates nine slaughter
plants, two further processing plants, 10 hatcheries and
seven feed mills, according to 2018 data.

Between 2015 and 2019, the company raised its
weekly RTC output to 47.8 million pounds from 45.4
million pounds. During the same period, the company
completed nearly $300 million worth of improvements to its operations in Alabama, including a new
$55 million feed mill in Ozark, Alabama; a new $4.5
customer innovation center in Decatur, Alabama;
a $105 million expansion of its processing plant in
Enterprise, Alabama, and numerous improvements to
its Dothan, Alabama, facility.
