ConAgra Foods, a top US food producer, owned several famous brands like Banquet, Chef Boyardee, Healthy Choice, and Van Camp's. It was one of the country's largest food service suppliers and offered shelf-stable foods, seafood, and dairy products.

The company offered agricultural products and food ingredients; mill flour and corn; and traded in food commodities.

ConAgra offered cold cuts, and poultry under its Butterball, Decker, and Eckrich brands. The company also produced seafood and dairy products such as cheese, desert toppings and margarine.

ConAgra had shifted away from its beginnings as a commodity producer and tried to recast itself as "America's favorite food company." It had divested non food-related businesses to focus on newly acquired brands, including Chef Boyardee, Louis Kemp, and PAM, among others. In 2003, ConAgra recorded revenues of $19,839.2 million and a net income of $774.8 million1.
