VINELAND, NJ — B & B Poultry Co., Inc., a private, third generation family owned business specializing in ready to cook poultry products, recently announced that it made environmentally friendly, essential infrastructure upgrades at its world class processing facility in Norma, Salem County, NJ. The upgrades were financed by Century Savings Bank of Vineland in partnership with the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York, via its innovative Business Development Advance (BDA) Program.
Josh Fisher, President, CEO of B & B Poultry Co, Inc. said, “It is critical to the life blood of manufacturers to invest in infrastructure.

The bank’s Chief Lending Officer Joe Rehm remarked, “Josh runs a first-class operation, and we’re proud that he chooses to bank with Century. It’s gratifying to find innovative ways to meet the needs of local businesses, like we did in this case with low-cost financing, thanks to the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York and their BDA Program purpose-built for companies like B&B.
