DOWNERS GROVE, ILL. — Sara Lee Corp. announced May 28 that it will reopen a former ConAgra Foods, Inc. meat processing facility in Wyandotte County, Kas. Government officials in Wyandotte County approved a measure that will grant Sara Lee a 10-year, 75% tax abatement for the project. In return, the company said it will set aside 55% of the estimated 250 news jobs the project will create for county residents.
Sara Lee said the facility will re-open in 2011.
