Nestlé to Expand Hungarian Pet Food Factory

Nestlé to Expand Hungarian Pet Food Factory

Nestlé is investing more than SFr70 million (€64 million) in new technology at its factory in Bük, Hungary. The current facility, which produces Purina pet food, will be enlarged to include a new production hall. When completed in late 2017, the plant at Bük will be Nestlé’s largest pet food production centre in Europe. The investment will create at least 70 new jobs, increasing the total number of employees to almost 1,000.

The extension – necessitated by changing market demands – will include two new production lines with four fillers and an automated multipack packaging unit. In addition to the transformation of the plant that currently produces canned pet food, a 5000 sq m new production hall will be erected with an output capacity of 1.6 million products per day.

Nestlé has pet food factories in nine countries in Europe, with only one other production unit in the CEE region besides Hungary, in Poland. 20% of the total 1 million tons of pet food manufactured in Europe is produced in Hungary, requiring a dispatch of 50 trucks from the factory on daily average.

A total 90% of the pet food produced in the Bük facilities is provided for export. Once the investment is complete, the United Kingdom will take over from Germany as the primary export destination of Nestlé, with 35% of the products delivered to the UK. Germany, Austria and Switzerland remain highly important markets, collectively receiving 40% of the products from Bük, while 10% of future exports will go to Italy.
