ConAgra announces closure of US plant

ConAgra has confirmed it is to close its plant in Fredonia, New York in 2015 in a move that will see 425 people lose their jobs.

In a statement to just-food yesterday (20 March), a spokesperson for the firm explained production would shift to an alternative site.

Transition will occur "in phases" starting this summer. The plant is expected to close in May 2015.

"The food will be made at other plants in ConAgra Foods that have similar capabilities and available capacity, which will allow the company to operate as effectively and efficiently as possible," just-food was told.
