OMAHA — ConAgra Foods Inc. said it will close an Odom’s Tennessee Pride pork processing plant in Little Rock, Ark., in late spring 2013, a move that will eliminate more than 200 jobs.

ConAgra acquired Odom’s Tennessee Pride, a producer of frozen and refrigerated breakfast sandwiches and sausage, in May. In addition to the facility in Little Rock, the acquisition included Odom’s facilities in Dickson and Madison, Tenn.

Odom’s was the nation's second-largest producer of frozen breakfast sandwiches at the time of the acquisition.
