OMAHA, Neb. – ConAgra Foods Inc. announced over the weekend that overall sales for the fourth quarter for fiscal 2008 rose 15 percent. The diluted EPS from continuing operations grew 38 percent.

ConAgra CEO Gary Rodkin said that the company made progress in pricing, innovation, marketing and efficiencies.

“Given the operating progress made this fiscal year as well as the recent divestiture of our trading and merchandising operations, we have an even greater focus on successfully executing the initiatives in our core food operations, as well as a much stronger foundation on which to deliver predictable and sustainable profitable growth going forward,” said Rodkin.
