The Lodz-based chocolate plant of Barry Callebaut is soon to be expanded to include two additional modern production lines for chocolate manufacturing. The planned investment is worth nearly PLN96 million (€22.8 million). The plant which was built nearly twenty years ago is located in the Special Economic Zone.

The first new production line will be operational in the summer of 2015. The whole investment will be completed by the end of 2016 and create 80 additional jobs, bringing up the total number of jobs to 200.

“The expansion of our plant in Lodz is a vital element in Barry Callebaut’s growth strategy in Central and Western Europe. Our operations in Poland are a cornerstone in our mid- and long-term plans and the expansion of our production capacity and development of modern methods for chocolate production are key to maintaining our leading market position,” says Philipp Schoeller, Vice President FM Europe Central, Member of the Management Board of Barry Callebaut Manufacturing Polska.

Barry Callebaut’s investment project in Lodz is conducted in the city’s Special Economic Zone, which is recognized as one of the most dynamic SEZ in Poland. Barry Callebaut’s plant expansion is one of the largest projects among all investments approved for implementation in SEZ in 2014.
