Cherokee Nation Principal Chief Chuck Hoskin Jr. and Deputy Chief Bryan Warner announced Friday the tribe will build a meat processing facility in Tahlequah.

“The Deputy Chief and I are committed to developing programs and economic development in the area of agriculture and the Council of the Cherokee Nation had continued to express a desire to explore a meat processing facility for our citizens,” Chief Hoskin said.

The meat processing facility will be located on existing Cherokee Nation property west of Tahlequah.

The facility will grow in phases, first serving Cherokee citizens with food insecurities and then potentially expand into the larger commercial marketplace.

The facility is expected to provide up to seven jobs.
