Agriprocessor Meat Plant: SOLD!

The good news of the day is the Agriprocessor has been sold ! More importantly, it will remain a kosher meat plant and hopefully can bring down the cost of kosher meat and poultry. The buyer: SHF industreies which as previously discussed is owned by Canadian plastics manufacturer Hershey Friedman and his son-in-law, Daniel Hirsch. No news as to how quickly they will get operations up and running. Agriprocessor aka Rubashkin had gone bankrupt after undergoing several scandals and labor law indictments.
