US - Illinois-based Koch Foods has said it will expand a poultry plant in west Georgia and plans to create 750 new jobs.

This announcement refers to a second phase of the project, reports The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The company plans to start two new processing lines and is expected to invest $49 million.

Last year, Koch acquired a former Cagle's plant in Harris County, about 30 miles north of Columbus, and retained 350 existing jobs, according to a news release on the expansion from Gov. Nathan Deal’s office. Koch later added 350 jobs there.
