Enviroflight to open in November ... n-november


Enviroflight President Liz Koutsos gave a presentation on the importance of companies like Enviroflight at Maysville Rotary Club on Tuesday.

...Koutsos said the Maysville Enviroflight location will be the first commercial scale insect production facility in the United States. It will employee 25 people when it first opens. However, it will employ more as the plant expands.

...“The plant will be cleaner than even your typical human food plant,” she said. “They’ll be the cleanest maggots you’ve ever seen. We’ll employee about 20-25 people during the first phase and we’re expected to grow through three phases. We do have an active business plan to grow and with each growth, we’ll increase our employees as well.”
