JACKSON, Tenn. — A company is making plans to close one of its Tennessee facilities and move its production to the Hub City.
Representatives with ConAgra Brands confirm their Odom’s Tennessee Pride sausage facility in Dickson, Tennessee will be closing in the fall of 2021.
More than 300 employees work at the facility. According to ConAgra, employees were recently informed of the closure.
Production will be moved to the Pinnacle Foods facility in Jackson.
