Turkey processor Butterball LLC, Garner, N.C., cited increasing costs for a decision to eliminate about 150 positions at its Huntsville, Ark., operation. Officials noted the move should have a "minimal" impact on full-time employees. . . . Spartan Foods of America Inc. said it is expanding into a 30,000-square-foot warehouse adjacent to its Spartanburg, S.C., plant. The company processes and markets Mama Mary's pizza crusts and refrigerated pancakes as well as Mystic Pizza frozen pizzas.
