ConAgra Foods Inc. spent $100,000 in the first quarter on government lobbying efforts, according to a recent disclosure report.
The food maker, based in Omaha, Neb., lobbied on trade, labor, food safety and other business issues in the January-through-March period.
ConAgra spent the same amount in the first quarter last year and the last three months of 2010.
Besides Congress, the company lobbied the Food and Drug Administration, the Department of Agriculture and the Office of Management and Budget, according to the report it filed April 20 with the House clerk's office.
Lobbyists are required to disclose activities that could influence members of the executive and legislative branches of government under a federal law enacted in 1995.
