Gov. Beebe speaks at edamame plant unveiling
Author: Mary Hightower, University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture

American Vegetable Soybean and Edamame, Inc., announced Tuesday it would add 40-60 new jobs in Mulberry in the next three years with the opening of a $5.8 million edamame processing facility. The soybean has become more popular as a snack, served in a vegetable dish, soups or even processed in to desserts. Gov. Mike Beebe, who admitted to being somewhat new to edamame, praised the collaboration between education and economic development for making the processing plant possible.
