Finnish dairy group Valio has officially opened a new Eur40m butter facility at its plant at Seinajoki. According to Valio, the new 100,000 tons per annum production unit is the most modern of its type in the world.

Built in 1979, the Seinajoki plant produces all of Valio’s butter and spreads and also houses a powder plant.
