FRANCE: LDC increases capacity of egg units
French poultry group LDC is investing EUR8.3m (US$11.5m) to increase the packaging capacity of its egg production subsidiaries, Sacofel and Sovopa.
The units, which produce the Loué and Le Gaulois brand eggs, will see packing capacity at Sacofel's plant in La Bazoge increase from 4.2m eggs a week to 8.5m eggs per week by the end of this year, Sacofel director Gérard Laurans told just-food.
Packaging will be transferred from a nearby plant operated by Sovopa, which will retain its role as a production site. "Concentrating the dispatch of eggs from a single site will improve productivity and optimise costs," Laurans added.
The restructuring project also makes provision to increase capacity at the Sacofel plant to 12m eggs per week if required.
