The factory will be built on the existing Kruiningen site and will be capable of producing a range of dehydrated potato products for industrial customers.
The total investment amounts to approximately € 50 million and includes processing, mixing, packaging and warehousing facilities. The expansion fits within the sustainability ambitions of LW/M to increase overall potato usage.
The company expects to start construction in the course of 2019. The company is also evaluating opportunities to expand french fry capacity at one of its existing processing facilities in Europe. The company recently also announced an investment to build a technology center in Bergen op Zoom, the Netherlands. Through these investments, Lamb Weston / Meijer will continue to support its customers with their growth plans.
