Kellogg, the leading US cereal and snacks firm, is investing in new manufacturing facilities to expand capacity for its Pringles snacks brand in Europe, according to reports in Portal Spozywczy and Just Food.
The company is said to be investing nearly 314 million PLN ($83 million) in the upgrade, which will see a new building and production lines constructed at the firm’s Kutno site in central Poland. The investment is described as Kellogg’s fourth in the Lodz Special Economic Zone.
If approved, the facility will reportedly begin construction this year, with a target completion date of late 2020.
Speaking to Just Food, a Kellogg spokesperson said: “We continue to enjoy double-digit growth for our Pringles brand across Europe, and increasing our production capacity at Kutno will greatly enable Kellogg’s ability to continue to meet the significant growth we have experienced, not only in the CEE (central and eastern Europe) area, but within the wider EMEA region”.
