ROMAN PLANT ADDITION SET TO START OPERATIONS

Roman Packing Co. said it plans to start operations at an addition to its meat-processing plant in Norfolk.

Wendall Newcomb, plant manager, said the 4,500-square-foot expansion has been in the works for more than a year. The added space will be used to make cooked, sliced beef that is an ingredient in a product called "Marie Callender's Yankee Beef Pie." Marie Callender's is a company label owned by ConAgra Inc. of Omaha.
