— West Carroll Parish is already reaping the benefits of ConAgra Foods Lamb Weston Sweet Potato Fries plant in Delhi as it has located its Ag Services Division in the former Oak Grove Produce plant located just north of Oak Grove on State Highway 17.
“This is a tremendous positive economic advancement for West Carroll Parish.” Chamber Director Adam Holland said. “When it was announced that ConAgra was going to locate its plant in Delhi we knew we would feel the ripple affects here locally, but didn’t expect it to be this soon or this large.”
Approximately 35 people mainly from West Carroll and Morehouse Parishes are employed by the Ag Services division in Oak Grove.
Lamb Weston stores its produce purchases from both local growers and growers outside of its geographical region at its Oak Grove plant, and it is also the home base for its trucking fleet. They also handle all other Ag Services for the local sweet potato community.
