ARKANSAS CITY, Kan. (KAKE) –
Creek Stone Farms is adding about 250 jobs in 2019 to their plant in Arkansas City because of a partnership with Walmart that will let them process their cattle.
The partnership was announced in a press release Thursday from Walmart stating that they wanted to enter the beef industry.
“They want to procure their cattle, own them, and then put the cattle to their stores for consumers,” said Ken Robinson, director of food safety and quality assurance for Creek Stone Farms.
Walmart will send their cattle to Arkansas City where they will be custom processed under a Walmart label. In the release it also said that Walmart wants to create an end to end supply chain that is transparent to their customers.
