An advertisement for Brawley Beef that appeared in the September/October issue of Valley Grower magazine contained incorrect information regarding the facility's scheduled preview event on Nov. 17.
Due to safety concerns, liability and legal issues, this event will be limited to industry-related guests, vendors and prospective customers of the new beef plant. Similarly, the public open house originally slated for Nov. 18 has been postponed.
It is hoped by the ownership and management team that arranged tours can be offered once the facility is actually in operation.
As editor of Valley Grower, I regret the error, and any confusion that may have resulted from its publication. I know the people behind Brawley Beef have been greatly heartened by the enthusiasm and excitement their project has engendered in the community, and I join with the rest of the Imperial Valley in wishing them every success.
