Atria Finland to increase efficiency of chicken production at its Sahalahti plant

Atria has decided to set in motion a development project in order to increase the efficiency of Atria Finland’s chicken production at its Sahalahti plant. The project will identify overlaps in Atria’s current operations and the areas in need of improvement at the plant. Personnel negotiations regarding the content of the development project will be initiated immediately.

Atria estimates that by eliminating overlaps and improving productivity, it could achieve annual savings of around EUR 1.5 million, which would materialise by the end of the first quarter of 2016. This would mean a reduction of about 25 man-years.

In February 2014, Atria acquired Saarioinen’s procurement, slaughtering and cutting operations for beef, pork and chicken. The development measures concern chicken production at the Sahalahti plant in Kangasala.
