ConAgra Foods - St. Charles, IL


Conagra Brands needed a renovation of their St. Charles, IL, meat process food plant in order to increase the facility’s efficiency and productivity. 

Due to their expertise in food facility planning and cold storage construction, Food Tech was selected to complete the renovation. The design-build project included multiple refrigeration engineering solutions, including the construction of a new high-rise freezer and refrigerated shipping and receiving docks. The completed 40,000-square-foot facility also has an ammonia refrigeration central system for cost-saving energy efficiency. 

During this project, Food Tech delivered the following:

  • United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) compliant process plant renovations
  • -10°F hi-rise freezer
  • 34°F shipping and receiving docks
  • Narrow aisle turret trucks
  • Ammonia refrigeration central system

Conagra Brands, Inc. makes and sells various packaged food products for sale in supermarkets, restaurants, and food service establishments. Founded in 1919 when four Nebraskan grain mills consolidated, Conagra has since grown to become the largest private-label packaged food business in the U.S.
