Billy Sims Plans Milk Powder Processing Plant

Posted: Updated:

BANGOR TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Former Detroit Lions running back Billy Sims is planning a milk powder processing plant in Michigan.

Sims says that those working on the project are close to purchasing a facility and that Chinese officials will likely travel to Bay County for a July presentation. He says they hope to fill some of China's demand for milk powder.

A facility in Bangor Township, about 75 miles northeast of Lansing, could be used for the plant. Sims says a state inspection will determine if that's appropriate.

Sims says the building also could house a packaging plant and refrigerated storage area, to keep cherries, apples and blueberries for shipment to China.

Sims' other business interests include the Billy Sims Barbecue chain, which operates in several states including Michigan.
