Arkansas aims for edamame dominance

Posted By on Tue, Jan 31, 2012 at 11:32 AM

Economic development officials announced today that American Vegetable and Soybean and Edamame Inc. will open a processing plant in Mulberry that will employ 51. Lots of details here from Roby Brock.

I liked this sentence in 40/29's coverage of the event:

Officials are hopeful that in a few short years Arkansas will be the edamame capital of the United States.

Move over, Popeye.

Edamame is the immature soybean, processed and often marketed as a healthy snack food.
