GERMANY: Bonduelle expands salads plant

By Stuart Todd | 12 December 2013

French vegetable processor Bonduelle has invested EUR6m in increasing capacity at a ready-to-eat salads plant in Germany.

Following seven months of building work and fitting-out, the capacity at the site in Straelen has been raised from 6,500 tonnes of salads annually to 10,000 tonnes.

With five production lines, the plant is expected to turn out 50m packaged salads in 2014, staffed by 200 workers.

"Bonduelle will now be able to call upon state-of-the-art production facilities which will allow it to strengthen its position as market leader in Germany for both [branded] and supermarkets' private-label products," the group added. 

Bonduell generates annual sales of EUR210m in Germany, of which EUR70m is accounted for by ready-to-eat salads.
