Graves tours KraftHeinz Company expansion in Kirksville
Kirksville, MO – North Missouri Congressman Sam Graves, (MO-06), toured the KraftHeinz Company operations in Kirksville on Thursday. Graves met with plant managers as well as K-REDI Executive Director Carolyn Chrisman and learned about the plant’s history and expansion. He also toured the bologna cooking line, one of the new lines that the plant added during their expansion.
“North Missouri is home to several products known throughout the world and Oscar Mayer cold cuts are some of the most iconic,” Graves said. “I’m excited that KraftHeinz chose to further invest in Kirksville, providing well-paying jobs for the area and making this the ‘Cold Cut Capitol.”
The KraftHeinz Company plant in Kirksville produces bologna, cotto salami, white turkey and squareham products under the Oscar Mayer brand.
Stephen Davis, the Plant Manager for the Kirksville plant, touted job opportunities and new line expansion.
“We were honored to host Congressman Graves at the Kirksville plant to showcase our new lines. KraftHeinz is pleased to call Kirksville home, providing quality head of household jobs for North Missouri,” said Davis.
