The proposed plan will be realised by mid-2021, and has the full support of the shareholder.
The Dutch Food & Ingredients company Vion will modernise its production location in Boxtel in order to further increase its competitiveness on the national and international meat markets.
Some of the activities that currently take place at the location in Scherpenzeel will be integrated into the location in Boxtel. With the planned investment of 35 million euros, Vion aims to realise a shorter supply chain with more value for the sale of meat in the market, improved efficiency and a more sustainable way of working by organising this at a single location.
The company will undertake the investment carefully and with respect for people, animals and the environment. The proposed plan will be realised by mid-2021, and has the full support of the shareholder.
Vion aims to move the ‘fresh’ activities that are carried out at its location in Scherpenzeel to Boxtel. This concerns the processing of middles, internal logistics and other fresh activities (such as the production of spare and belly ribs).
Organising these activities under one roof – together with the existing slaughter and processing activities in Boxtel – will improve logistics to a great extent. It will shorten the supply chain, which will result in an improvement in the quality and freshness of the meat and a more efficient production.
