New Campari plantThis article was originally published in Foodnews
CAMPARI Brazil is investing BRL120 million (USD65 million) in a new plant that will be launched into operation in Brazil's northeastern Pernambuco state in November, writes Vladimir Pekic. The launch of the new Suape unit was planned originally for October 2009, but the project was delayed due to the global economic crisis. Ultimately, the delay was positive as Campari doubled Suape's planned size to 32 000 square meters and the intended BRL60 million investment. Suape will produce 5.0 million boxes of Campari, Old Eight whiskey and Dreher brandy. Campari's existing plant in Jaboatão dos Guararapes will be shut down.
