Kellogg Company has begun construction of a new manufacturing line at its Pringles factory in Kutno, Poland.
The €110 million investment will help to meet the growing demand for Pringles across Europe. It is expected the line will be completed and active by May 2021.
Located in the Łódź Special Economic Zone, the factory was originally built in 2008 to produce Special K. Pringles have been made there since 2014.
Representing the fourth manufacturing line at the Kutno plant, the new facilities will be housed in a 21,000-square-metre building.
The new line will see capacity at the factory increase by 34% to produce approximately 60,000 tonnes of Pringles per year.
“We’re delighted to start work on this expansion of our plant here in Poland. We know that consumers love Pringles and we are seeing continued growth for Pringles across all of our core markets in Europe,” said Dave Lawlor, president, Kellogg Europe.
“This investment means that we’ll be able to increase production of our food to meet the increasing demand we’re experiencing. This is great news for Kellogg, great news for Pringles fans everywhere and great news for the team here in Kutno.”
In its third-quarter results published last month, Kellogg posted a 2.4% increase in organic net sales thanks in part to the performance of snack brands such as Pringles.
