ConAgra Foods, Omaha, Neb., is expanding its Russellville Ala., facility that produces Banquet, Healthy Choice and Marie Callender’s products.
The $100 million expansion will also accommodate production of Bertolli and P.F. Chang’s Home Menu frozen meal lines, which ConAgra acquired from Unilever PLC last year. The project will add 80 employees to the plant’s workforce of approximately 1,300.
“ConAgra Foods has a long history in the community, and we are excited to grow our presence here,” says Mike Tracy, senior vice president of the consumer foods supply chain. “Our talented, committed employees and the tremendous support we receive from the city of Russellville and state of Arkansas will help us make great food here well into the future.”
