Project Southern Foods Meat, Seafood and Cheese Processing Facility

A M King transformed an 88,000 sf vacant shell building into an innovative meat, seafood and cheese processing facility for Cheney Brothers, Inc. affiliate Southern Foods in Greensboro, NC.

The new building allows the 66-year old company to operate in a larger, more modern space, handle greater volumes, and save money in repairs and maintenance, thereby bringing even more competitive pricing to its marketplaces.

The complexity of this project is evident in the design and construction of the 13,500 sf food processing area, which includes a distinctive, 4,200 sf meat aging room fitted with high-tech temperature and humidity controls and large viewing windows that emphasize the dynamic nature of the meat curing process. The facility also features a fish processing area; a cheese processing room; the largest culinary center CBI has developed to date, named after CBI’s CEO Byron Russell; and express purchasing for the general public that stocks Certified Angus Beef, Ashe County Cheese and many varieties of fish, among numerous other items.
