ConAgra Sells Plants

Comments Off

ConAgra Foods said today it will sell 15 plants in 10 states, including a turkey processing operation in Longmont, Colo., as it sheds its refrigerated meats business.

Here’s an excerpt of the 2/3/06 story in the Rocky Mountain News:

The sale, which the company announced Thursday, would affect about 6,000 employees of the Omaha-based company, and ConAgra plans to part with its Armour, Butterball and Eckrich brands.

Another ConAgra spokesman Thursday said the company expects that most of those 6,000 employees would become employees of the new owner after a sale, which is expected to take 10-12 months to complete.

The Longmont plant employs about 900 people.
