BRF expands production at subsidiary Plusfood, in Holland
Plusfood, the European arm of Brasil Foods (BRF), in Oosterwolde, the Netherlands, acquired in 2007, has had € 10 million invested in it to expand production capacity by 75%.
With the expansion, the unit will be able to produce 20,000 tons a year of breaded, baked and grilled chicken products, as well as hamburgers and other items. The company produces CHIXXS chicken snacks, launched recently on the German and UK markets, and set to be launched in Italy and the Netherlands by the end of the year.
The investment has also improved technology at Plusfood. Equipment can now be maintained without affecting production, working 22 hours a day without stopping.
