Bankrupt South Texas beef processor sold

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) – A South Texas beef processor has been sold to a North Carolina real estate developer at a court-approved bankruptcy auction.

Corpus Christi-based Kane Beef Processors had filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection last month. In a statement, JDH Capital Co. of Charlotte, North Carolina, said it intends to make “meaningful investments in the processing plant and will continue to operate the business as a going concern.

The slaughterhouse had agreed in a July federal court settlement to pay nearly $38 million over 18 months that it owed to livestock sellers. Federal law requires next-business-day payment for livestock purchases.

That was after the company was accused of violating a January 2017 order by the U.S. Department of Agriculture requires the slaughterhouse to make payments when due.
