  RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - An international company that produces convenience foods for 7-Eleven and other retailers is adding 350 new jobs at its Stafford County plant.
 
     Gov. Bob McDonnell announced Ireland-based Greencore Group's plans Tuesday. He said the company will spend $5.75 million to expand the food processing facility.
 
     McDonnell met with Greencore officials in Dublin to discuss the project during a marketing mission last July to Ireland.
 
     Greencore CEO Liam McClennon said Virginia offers talented prospective employees as well as high quality local ingredients that can be used in the company's products.
 
     Greencore operates 22 manufacturing plants in the United States and the United Kingdom. The company employs more than 11,000 people, including about 250 at the Stafford plant.
