Swedish food tech company Nick’s has announced the full opening of a new €6 million facility in Bitola, North Macedonia.
Founded in 2017, Nick’s produces no-added-sugar snacking products such as bars, as well as sweeteners and ice cream.
With the multi-million-euro investment in a new production facility, Nick’s aims to keep up with demand for its products. The Bitola factory has capacity to produce over 40 million confectionery and protein bars each year.
Stefan Lagerqvist, CEO of Nick’s, said: “We are delighted by the sustained growth of our company globally, and the impressive work from our North Macedonian colleagues to support that global growth in the opening of a new factory. The quality and commitment of our team internationally is unprecedented, and I’m proud that our continued investments in Bitola continue to create new jobs locally.”
He added: “Our good relationship with local authorities and the team on the ground in North Macedonia has created a superb foundation for future production expansion. With our current growth trajectory, it’s just a matter of time until we need to start installing new lines in the factory.”
