The parent company of Gold 'N Plump Chicken, which has a production plant in Arcadia is being sold.

The paper says G-N-P's nearly 17,000 employees and 350 chicken growers, including those in the Arcadia, area will be retained.

G-N-P CEO Mike Helgeson said it will be business as usual.

Helgeson said G-N-P had been looking for a partner to obtain money for further growth.

Maschhoffs is a large family-owned hog producer an says its the largest family-owned pork producer in North America.
