Greenyard Foods announced the opening of its expanded factory in Lipno, Poland, on September 6. Encompassing more than 22,000 square meters of space, the state-of-the-art frozen vegetable and fruit processing plant has been designed to consume significantly less water and energy.
The Sint-Katelijne-Waver, Belgium-headquartered company’s frozen production operations in Poland are now largely concentrated at Lipno, supported by satellite factories in Adamów and Dabrowa, and a storage and distribution unit in Elk. Situated in what is regarded as the best-developed agricultural area of the country, the enlarged plant will be able to process more varieties of fruits and vegetables.
“We are proud of the finalization of this major investment at Lipno, our main Polish production facility,” said CEO Marleen Vaesen. “The capacity increase allows for future growth of our business. It is an important step in centralizing our production facilities, as part of our operational excellence program.”
