The purpose of this grant is to provide funding to the Town of Pembroke to construct a publicly owned wastewater pre-treatment facility that will serve Trinity Foods, LLC, and others. Trinity Foods will operate a sweet potato processing plant in Pembroke. The plant is ultimately expected to process 90,000,000 pounds of sweet potatoes into fries and other frozen sweet potato products annually. The company will create 149 new jobs by the end of 2015 with an average annual wage of $23,405 plus benefits. The pretreatment facility is necessary to allow Trinity Foods to discharge its wastewater into the Town of Pembroke wastewater treatment plant. The pretreatment facility will be easily expandable to accommodate other users and the growth of Trinity Foods.
