The facility will also include grain and oilseed processing/milling and support more than 25 new jobs.

“Tradepoint Atlantic at the Port of Baltimore is ideally located to receive grain and supply organic customers throughout the Mid-Atlantic region,” said Dick Willey, president, Perdue AgriBusiness. “We work directly with local farmers and traders in the United States, Europe, South America, and Asia to source organic grain and soybeans. This new complex will be a key part of an integrated supply chain that enables us to increase business and reduce the cost while maintaining the quality of our organic products.”

“We’re on a mission to make organic chicken more accessible to more consumers, but the limiting factor is the availability of organic grain,” said Perdue Farms CEO Randy Day. “Expanding our grain operations at Tradepoint Atlantic and the Port of Baltimore will support the continued growth of our organic poultry production in the region.”

Perdue is the leading producer of USDA certified organic chicken and the PERDUE brand is the number one brand of chicken in the U.S. Perdue AgriBusiness sources, purchases, and processes agricultural commodities and offers a diverse portfolio of products, including grains, soybean meal, feed ingredients, and edible oils.
