After considering sites in both Texas and Colorado, Cargill will be keeping its meat and protein division headquarters, and 800 employees, in Wichita.

  

The Minnesota-based agriculture, energy and pharmaceutical company currently operates its Meat Solutions division out of a 110,000-square-foot building in downtown Wichita.

Cargill announced in March its desire to build a new headquarters for its meat and protein division, and Wichita Mayor Jeff Longwell says he was worried that the company would hit the road.

Cargill plans to invest more than $50 million to upgrade and increase the capacity of its soybean processing plant in Wichita. KMUW’s Abigail Wilson reports the project is expected to be completed in 2017.
