Bringing home the bacon in Blair Co.: Kunzler adds jobs to meet demand

By: WJAC Web Staff and The Associated Press

TYRONE, Pa. -- The sound of sizzling of bacon is being credited for creating more jobs at a Blair County meat plant.

Officials with Kunzler and Co. in Tyrone said the company added 13 employees within the past week and plan to add up to 12 more this year as they increase production of all-natural bacon.

Plant manager Dave Grazier said the company is producing about 120,000 pounds of natural bacon each week, on top of making 250,000 pounds of its regularly processed bacon.

The all-natural product uses sea salt and raw sugar, and doesnt include any man-made cures of preservatives.

The company is headquartered in Lancaster, Pa. The Tyrone plant, with its 175 employees, is the only one in the company that produces bacon.

Company officials said a worldwide demand for bacon is a contributing factor to the companys growth.
