Aspiration was in the air Friday at the former Rancho Feeding Corporation, a marked change from the scandal that has enveloped the Petaluma slaughterhouse for months.
The new owner of the Petaluma plant — which went under in February amid a massive recall of its beef and veal products — promised a new era.
“The change comes from the top; we have new leadership,” said David Evans, owner of Marin Sun Farms. He and a group of investors he would not identify purchased the plant Feb. 28 for a sum he wouldn’t disclose. They plan to reopen the plant April 7 under the name Marin Sun Farms Petaluma, Evans said.
