Wyoming Company Wants to Beef up Operations with State Help

Wyoming Company Wants to Beef up Operations with State Help

3/15/2017 6:54:00 AM/Categories: Today's Top 5, People in Ag, Ag Issues


Associated Press reports: 

A Cody, Wyo. company is seeking about $940,000 in financial help from the state so it can beef up sales of its jerky products.


However, Wyoming Authentic Products previously benefited from state aid when it started up, and some believe the company should now foot the costs of expansion itself.

A sharply divided Wyoming Business Council last week approved the proposed project, which involves a $750,000 state grant and a state-arranged loan of about $190,000.

The Wyoming State Loan and Investment Board will make the final decision in April on whether to approve the request.

Wyoming Authentic Products benefited in the beginning of its operations when the local Cody economic development organization constructed the building that's now the jerky producer's home with the help of a $1.2 million state grant in 2011.

The company's new proposal seeks to expand its office, smoker, raw meat preparation and packaging space, Julie Kozlowski, the Business Council's community development director, told the Casper Star-Tribune.

The project's costs are just over $1 million. The city of Cody requested the $750,000 state grant, and the Business Council arranged for a four-year, 5 percent loan to the company to help pay for the project.
