Nestlé to replace Trenton's ConAgra
TRENTON, Mo. —
ConAgra Foods' decision to leave Trenton, Missouri left the city in dire need of a replacement.
"This announcement by Nestlé could not have come at a better time for the economic future of our community. I'm very excited this will happen and improve the business climate of Trenton and the region. This will help improve the quality of life for all of our citizens,” said Trenton Mayor Nick McHargue in a press release.
The city is currently relying on reserved funds because of the loss of revenue.
"The reserve will carry us through until they get up and running," said City of Trenton Utility Director Ron Urton in January.
Nestlé has several jobs listed on its website. It intends on hiring around 150 positions, only half of the positions laid off by ConAgra.
Those laid off will be eligible for these new positions.
