Potato plant plans on hold

Thursday, January 24, 2013
The Teton Valley Ranch plant here has remained virtually shut down for a month.

A potato processing plant in Mountain Home remains at a standstill after the company's restructuring plan led to the loss of 15 local jobs.

The Teton Valley Ranch plant on East 6th South Street employed most of its workers on a seasonal basis and was forced to cut those jobs in December, according to Carlos Mercado, a spokesman with the company's headquarters in Blackfoot, Idaho.

  • These folks very quietly provided spuds for a lot of local activities. Provided employment for a lot of folks and in general were a great compliment to Mtn. Home. We miss you and hope things get better and you open back up.
