Vion is investing £11.5million to improve animal welfare and increase processing capacity; the cash will also be used to upgrade the chilling technology.
The Netherlands-based company currently employs over 700 people and supplies retailers including Marks and Spencer, Tesco and Sainsbury.
Vion's MD Seamus Carr said: "Our strategy is to build on the success of the Cookstown brand by investing in our people and in our processes.
"We anticipate a substantial increase in productivity and sales as a result of this investment."
The investment has been supported by Invest NI, which offered Vion £960,000, including £244,500 of support through its Jobs Fund.
Enterprise Minister Arlene Foster said the investment was a "tremendous boost".
"The enhancements to the company's processing facilities will allow it to become more efficient and increase profitability as well as ensuring that the pigs are handled in the most humane way possible.
"Vion anticipates a significant increase in sales as a result of this investment and will ensure the company continues to play a strategic role in sustaining the important Northern Ireland pork sector."
The Co Tyrone site is already the largest pig processing site in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
