Local Bounti breaks ground at new Texas facility
Added on 16 January 2023
“Mount Pleasant is thrilled to welcome Local Bounti to the region,” says Nathan Tafoya, Executive Director of the Mount Pleasant Economic Development Corporation. “With its innovative and proprietary controlled-environment agriculture (CEA) approach, Local Bounti adds a much-desired agri-tech ingredient to Mount Pleasant’s rich history in food production. We’ve already begun integrating workforce training and partnership conversations with our college’s Ag program. As Local Bounti’s chosen Texas location for a multimillion-dollar investment, and multiple planned phases, Mount Pleasant looks forward to growing with Local Bounti for many years to come.”
The addition of the new facility in northeast Texas is expected to fortify Local Bounti’s distribution in markets across Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas, Kansas, and Missouri. Further, the facility is designed to provide additional capacity to meet existing demand from Local Bounti’s direct relationships with blue-chip retailers and distributors throughout the region.
