Increased production capacity

The convenience food trend is gaining traction with consumers in all of our home markets - it's a trend we see all over the world. To meet the growing demand for ready-to-eat products, we recently expanded capacity in Farre by upgrading one of the production lines. The expansion will contribute to increased production capacity.
