Vion to Modernises Boxtel Production Plant and Strengthen Competitive Position With €35 Million Investment

Vion Food Group plans to modernise its pork production site in Boxtel in the Netherlands to further increase its competitiveness on the national and international meat markets. Some of the activities that currently take place at Vion’s plant at Scherpenzeel will be integrated into the Boxtel site. With the planned investment of €35 million, Vion aims to achieve a shorter supply chain, improve efficiency and introduce a more sustainable way of working by consolidating at a single location.

Vion aims to move the ‘fresh’ activities that are carried out at 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. This way of working is also more sustainable – it will decrease the number of transport movements (goods transport) by more than 1 million kilometres per year.

It is expected that the majority of the more than 120 employees who are connected to ‘fresh’ activities at Vion Scherpenzeel will be relocated within the Vion locations in Boxtel, Apeldoorn and Groenlo, or will leave by means of natural labour turnover.
