Costco creates "hands off" poultry plant

Posted: Updated:

Costco's high-tech chicken plant takes a hands-off processing approach.

The wholesale company, and its processing operator, Lincoln Premium Poultry, have cut labor needs in-half from the original estimate of 16-hundred workers.

In early October, the plant was running two lines and slaughtering roughly 500-thousand birds each week.

The new goal is to start a third line at the beginning of December and add a second shift in February to quadruple slaughter to 2 million birds each week.
