Why did Clemens choose the state of Michigan for the location of the plant?
Michigan is located in the Eastern Corn Belt and is a central point for available hog supply. Clemens’ Michigan partners made a strong case for Michigan as a viable plant location, and Clemens agreed with that assessment.

Clemens also valued the insights and partnership with various government and economic development entities involved in the preliminary discussions in the state. Further, Clemens’ producer partners have operations in Michigan, Ohio and Indiana, which made SW Michigan an ideal and easily accessible location for everyone involved.
