Hello everybody!
Can you please check if this sentence is OK and could you tell me which is better:

In years that followed, continuous development together with market expansion and higher hygenic, veterinarian and ecological standards contributed to the building of a new meat processing (production) plant in 2007.

Thank you in advance.

In <the> years that followed, continuous development together with market expansion and higher hygenic, veterinarian and ecological standards contributed to the building of a new meat processing (production) plant in 2007.

"Processing" means that you worked on the meat.
"Producing" would mean that you created the meat.
