Concord Planning Board OKs Poultry Processing Plant

Dec 18, 2014

Construction is set to begin next year on a poultry processing plant in East Concord, after the city’s planning board gave the project the green light.

The Concord Monitor reports the board voted last night to OK the 5,500 square foot plant, which will be located just off Exit 16 of I-93.

The vote came despite opposition from neighbors concerned about odor and other pollution from the plant.

Fournier Foods, the company proposing the plant, agreed to several conditions intended to address those concerns, among them that waste cannot be deposited in onsite dumpsters.
