The performance-based incentive allows a company to keep a portion of its investment over the term of the agreement through corporate income tax credits and wage assessments by meeting job and investment targets.Over the next few years, Berry will ramp up employment at the facility to reach a targeted employment level of 400. In early 2013, the Company will begin accepting applications for these positions which are expected to be filled predominately by residents of Kentucky.
