New Utah Beef Plant Opening in Richfield Promises Jobs and Sustainability


Richfield, Utah, is anticipating the grand opening of a new facility for Utah Beef Producers LLC this Saturday, marking a significant addition to the region’s USDA-inspected slaughter capacity and employment opportunities with over 100 new jobs, as reported by local media and the processor’s Facebook page.

The owner pledges a state-of-the-art operation and invites the public to tour the facility during its opening celebration, showcasing its dedication to excellence and sustainable practices. Visitors will have the opportunity to observe firsthand the facility’s commitment to humane processing methods and innovative sustainability initiatives.

This new plant aims to serve Utah ranchers by providing an outlet for their cattle and supplying high-quality beef to local restaurants. Additionally, it will introduce its own Horizon Heritage Farms brand, offering traceability from farm to fork, and enabling direct-to-consumer sales. Sustainability efforts include implementing waste management practices, such as converting processing waste into biochar, a soil enhancer with potential environmental benefits.

In conjunction with its opening, Utah Beef Producers will raise funds for the construction of an observation classroom. The company is also collaborating with Snow College and Utah State University on agricultural education programs, as reported by media sources.
