Atria makes the largest investment in its history – €155 million to expand poultry production
Atria has made a decision to invest in expanding its poultry production capacity. The company is investing approximately €155 million to construct a new processing plant on its existing site in Nurmo. The investment includes new slaughtering, cutting and packaging lines. This investment will increase poultry production capacity by approximately 40%.
The new processing plant will help the company to meet growing consumer demand, and it will strengthen Atria's position as market leader for poultry products in Finland. The new plant and increased capacity will enable Atria to increase its exports of poultry products. The investment will enable the development of a product portfolio for further processed products.
"The planning phase of the construction project and the application processes for the necessary official permits began about a year ago. The poultry production facilities in Nurmo need to be modernized, and we need to increase our capacity to be able to better meet future consumer demand. In order to strengthen our position as the number one poultry producer in Finland, we decided to make the largest single investment in our company's history," explains Atria's CEO Juha Gröhn.
The new processing plant will help the company to meet growing consumer demand, and it will strengthen Atria's position as market leader for poultry products. Construction work at the site of the new plant will begin as soon as possible with an estimated completion date of 2024 at the earliest.
