Food and agriculture firm Perdue Farms is preparing to kick off a $27 million project to convert a former food processing plant in Shelby, MI into a new facility that will manufacture the firm’s Spot Farms and Full Moon brands of pet treats.

“As people are increasingly seeking cleaner labels in what they feed their pets, this new production facility will play a key role in the continued growth of our human-grade pet treat brands,” said Ryan Perdue, Vice President and General Manager of Perdue’s Pet Business, in a . “The central location of this facility in Michigan will help us drive efficiencies in our supply chain, improve freight costs, enable access to a strong local workforce, and allow for multiple phases of expansion within the property’s existing footprint.”

The opening of the plant is expected to create 100 new jobs. Perdue Farms said growth in its pet treat division drove its decision to invest in the site.
