Koch Foods Backs out of Feed Mill Deal

Opted to build near Attalla, AL, instead of Roanoke

A Koch Foods feed mill that would have brought approximately 40 jobs to Randolph County, AL, will be built elsewhere, according to Randolph County Economic Development Authority (RCEDA) Director Bryant Whaley.

Koch had agreed to build the mill on a piece of land on the southern end of Roanoke and had purchased approximately 27 acres of land to do so.

But Koch backed out of that agreement and opted to build the mill near Attalla, saying that was a logistically more logical location in relation to its operation centers in Gadsden and Pine Mountain, GA.
