ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) - A St. Joseph company that supplies ingredients to pet food companies is planning a new plant.

Protein LLC is investing $11.6 million in the project on 9.5 acres in an industrial area.

The St. Joseph Chamber of Commerce said in a news release Monday that site preparation work has begun for the project.

The Kansas City Star reports (https://bit.ly/1tPO7tM ) the land was provided to the company by the St. Joseph Regional Port Authority and Buchanan County. Protein LLC also will receive at least a 50 percent real property tax abatement on improvements it makes and additional incentives are possible.

Protein LLC currently employs 50 people and plans to add 20 full-time jobs when the plant opens.
