WARREN, Ark. (AP) - An Arkansas-based poultry company has announced it will add 100 jobs at its processing plant in Warren.

Ozark Mountain Poultry opened the facility in Warren just five weeks ago with 124 workers. According to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (https://bit.ly/1wsgMoG ), the company now says it will add 100 jobs and a second shift to its operations beginning next month.

The Rogers-based company is leasing the former H&L Poultry facility, which closed four years ago. Ozark Mountain Poultry raises antibiotic-free chicken and sells it to retailers under the Forester Farmer’s Market brand and directly to restaurants.

Bradley County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director David King says the company became the county’s fifth-largest employer with the added jobs.
