Jobs in the Food Processing Division
There are many jobs in the food processing division. Food processing is the inspection, packaging, and distribution of the food that is manufactured within a farm. On a farm, food processors might be responsible for collecting eggs, cleaning them, identifying eggs that are not suitable, packaging the eggs, and ultimately packing up the eggs for delivery. Comparatively, the Live Animal Division would tend to the chickens producing the eggs.
Today, we have made great strides in making food processing labor healthier and safer. Those who work in food processing are ultimately in control of the food that is distributed to their community, which is something important when working for a family farm such as Cooper Farms. Cooper Farms prides itself on the quality of the food that it puts out — and every team member can take pride in their job.
Other forms of food processing can vary depending on the food that a farm is producing. Some farms will produce wheat and may produce it as far as creating baked goods for sale — or may just produce flour from which to produce baked goods. So, people who are in food production can enjoy a variety of careers.
