NEW CASTLE, Ind. (AP) — Officials say a meat processing company will build a plant in central Indiana where it could have 200 workers within the next few years.

New Castle-Henry County Economic Development Corp. President Corey Murphy says the project by Boar’s Head Meats includes an initial investment of $80 million.

The Courier-Times reports the company is buying nearly 65 acres of land in an industrial park near New Castle, about 40 miles east of Indianapolis. The Florida-based company processes deli meats and has been looking at the New Castle location for the past few months.
