U.S. Senator Chris Coons (D-Del.) today welcomed approval of a deal to sell Seaford's Allen Family Foods to Harim USA, the American division of South Korean meat producer Harim Holdings Co.
"It is terrific news for Delaware that hundreds of our neighbors who have worked at Allen Family Foods will be able to keep their jobs thanks to this sale," Senator Coons said. "The best way to strengthen our communities is to ensure that more and more Americans have access to good, quality jobs, and this deal does just that. This outstanding news -- combined with Mountaire's planned expansion at its facilities in Millsboro and Selbyville -- is a promising sign that the tide is turning for the job market in Sussex County."
