FRANKFORT, Ind. (AP) - ConAgra Foods plans to move about 150 jobs from a central Indiana warehouse after it opens a new distribution center in a nearby city.

ConAgra officials say the company expects to start construction this summer on the new 1.6 million-square-foot warehouse in Frankfort. The Nebraska-based company says the Frankfort facility will have about 225 workers by 2015, including jobs being moved from its current distribution center about 20 miles to the south in Lebanon.

ConAgra says the new warehouse will accommodate current and future business needs for the packaged-food company.

The new warehouse will be built on a 288-acre site near Frankfort’s industrial park. ConAgra says it will have a logistics company manage the warehouse and employ its workers.
