Kellogg has announced that construction has commenced on a new manufacturing line at its Pringles factory in Kutno in the Lodz Special Economic Zone in Poland. This €110 million investment will help to meet the growing demand for Pringles across Europe and the new manufacturing line will be completed and running by May 2021.
Kellogg built the original factory in Poland to produce Special K in 2008 and Pringles have been produced there since 2014. This is the fourth manufacturing line at the Kutno plant, and this new line will be housed in a 21,000-square-meter building. This high-speed line will see capacity at the factory increase by 34% to produce approximately 60,000 tons of Pringles per year.
“We’re delighted to start work on this expansion of our plant here in Poland. We know that consumers love Pringles and we are seeing continued growth for Pringles across all of our core markets in Europe,” said Dave Lawlor, president, Kellogg Europe. “This investment means that we'll be able to increase production of our food to meet the increasing demand we’re experiencing.”
