Kroger to make $1 bln contribution to its benefit plans

July 17 (Reuters) - Kroger Co, the biggest U.S. supermarket operator, said on Monday it would make a contribution of up to $1 billion to its benefit plans to address the under-funded position of the plan.

The company will issue debt to pay for the funding of the pension liability, Kroger said in a regulatory filing, adding that its overall balance sheet obligations will not change. (http://bit.ly/2u0MKRP) (Reporting by Divya Grover in Bengaluru; Editing by Shounak Dasgupta)
