ConAgra cuts 130 jobs in St. Louis

ST. LOUIS (AP) _ The Nebraska-based maker of Chef Boyardee and Healthy Choice
frozen dinners is eliminating more than 100 jobs at its St. Louis office.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch ( ) reports that ConAgra Foods is
cutting its local workforce from 450 employees to 320. A spokesman says the
Omaha company has no plans to close its downtown St. Louis location. ConAgra
acquired St. Louis-based Ralcorp in 2012 for about $5 billion.

The company had said in March 2013 that it was committed to maintaining a
corporate presence in St. Louis by keeping about 500 employees. But in February,
ConAgra announced plans to trim $100 million in selling, general and
administrative costs by the end of its 2016 fiscal year.
