Atria Finland to increase efficiency of chicken production at its Sahalahti plant
In September, Atria set in motion a development project in order to increase the efficiency of Atria Finland’s chicken production at its Sahalahti plant. Atria estimates that removing overlapping functions and improving efficiency will result in annual savings of about EUR 1.5 million, which will be realised by the end of the first quarter of 2016.
Negotiations with the personnel concerning the adjustment of operations were initiated in September, and the negotiations have now been completed. The negotiations have resulted in a reduction of 19 man-years of work input at the Sahalahti plant.
Atria acquired Saarioinen's procurement, slaughtering and cutting businesses for beef, pork and chicken in February 2014. The current development measures concern chicken production at the Sahalahti plant in Kangasala.
