ConAgra Foods, Omaha, Neb., announced plans to expand its Russellville, Ark., facility to produce Bertolli and P.F. Chang’s frozen meals. The estimated $100 million investment is expected to create more than 80 jobs.

“ConAgra Foods has a long history in Russellville, and we are pleased to grow our presence in the area,” says Mike Tracy, senior vice president of consumer foods supply chain. “Our dedicated employees, along with the support of the city of Russellville and the state of Arkansas, will allow us to make great food here for many years to come.”

ConAgra Foods has approximately 1,350 employees in Russellville and has operated in the area since 1965.

ConAgra Foods acquired the Bertolli and P.F. Chang’s Home Menu frozen meals businesses earlier this year as part of its growth strategy, which includes growing its core businesses and expanding into strategic adjacencies.
