Conecuh Sausage To Open Second Facility In Alabama

Conecuh Sausage is a family-owned business, established in Evergreen in 1947, that produces high-quality meats with a patented blend of seasonings.

A hickory-smoked sausage maker will invest nearly $58 million to establish its second production facility in Alabama, according to the Alabama Department of Commerce.

Conecuh Sausage, which Gov. Kay Ivey called a “landmark, homegrown brand,” expects to create 110 jobs in Covington County, Alabama, because of the expansion.
