Tyson Foods has entered into an agreement to sell its poultry complex in Vienna, GA, to House of Raeford Farms, the company announced.

The company's decision to sell the complex is part of its continued efforts to optimize its plant network, and the company will continue to service customer orders from other production locations.

In 2015, Tyson upgraded and expanded the poultry facility and put around $10 million into it. The poultry company has owned the complex since 1995.

The Vienna plant had been manufacturing chicken for food service customers, but it converted to supply fresh tray-pack chicken to meet the needs of regional retail customers.

House of Raeford Farms, a fourth-generation company, intends to continue poultry processing at the complex utilizing the existing workforce and grower network. The Farm has been located in Rose Hill, NC, since 1955.
