Iconic crisp brand Pringles to expand production with 110 million EUR investment
Pringles are expanding their production in Poland and adding an extra 100 skilled jobs to the 440 that are currently based here.
The new investment will total 110 million EUR and is being made to meet the growing demand for Pringles across Europe.
The site in Kutno, in the Lódź Special Economic Zone, was originally opened to produce Kellogg’s Special K in 2008.
The Pringles brand was bought by Kellogg’s in 2012 and since 2014 Pringles has been produced there.
This will be the fourth manufacturing line at the Kutno plant. Using the latest technology, the high-speed line will see capacity at the factory increase by over 30 percent and production ramp up to approximately 60,000 tonnes per year.
The company has said it has had double digit growth across Europe in recent years and is growing strongly in the Middle East and Africa as well.
The expansion is expected to be completed in May 2021.
