ConAgra to cut 50 jobs in St. Louis

Tuesday, 02 July 2013 11:00 Published in Local News

ConAgra Foods, which acquired St. Louis-based food maker Ralcorp earlier this year, says it will now be shedding 50 employees in St. Louis. Back in March, ConAgra said it was planning to keep Ralcorp's downtown office and their 500 employees. But just a few days ago, the company filed a federally-mandated mass layoff notice with the state. Those layoffs will take place before the end of July. Some of the major ConAgra brands include Healthy Choice, Orville Redenbacher, and Slim Jim. ConAgra acquired Ralcorp for $6.8 billion in January.
