ConAgra expanding production, hiring

MENOMONIE, Wis. (AP) -- In a climate of layoffs and furloughs, ConAgra Foods is planning a $28 million expansion in Menomonie that will create 30 jobs.

ConAgra's addition to its Snack Pack pudding production line, including a new pudding machine with the latest technology, should be finished by December.

The company says the new jobs will be in production, maintenance and warehousing. The plant currently employs about 350 people.

More than 110 Wisconsin dairy farmers supply milk to the plant, which also produces Swiss Miss hot chocolate and refrigerated pudding.
