MULBERRY, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas officials say Crawford County will be the site of a new $5.8 million soybean-processing plant that will create more than 50 jobs.
Government and business leaders announced Tuesday that American Vegetable Soybean and Edamame Inc. planned to open its facility in Mulberry. The company sells edamame — an immature soybean that's touted as a snack food and is often served as an appetizer in Asian restaurants.
The company is owned by JYC International, which imports frozen foods from China to the U.S.
The company says it will eventually employ 51 people at the facility in Crawford County.
