US-based food manufacturing company Kellogg has commenced construction on €110m ($121.3m) new manufacturing line at its Pringles factory in Kutno, Poland.

The company said that it has invested in the new manufacturing line to meet the growing demand for Pringles across Europe.

The new facility is expected to commence operations by May 2021.

The Pringles Factory was built in Kutno in the Lodz Special Economic Zone in Poland in 2008 and has been producing special K Pringles at the facility since 2014.

The original Pringles Factory has created more than 440 skilled jobs in the region. The new facility is also expected to create 100 new jobs in the region.

The new manufacturing line represents the fourth facility at the Kutno plant and it will be housed in a 21,000m² building.

Kellogg said that the latest food production technology will be deployed at the new facility, which will see capacity at the factory increase by 34% to produce around 60,000 tonnes of Pringles yearly.

Kellogg Europe president Dave Lawlor said: “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.

“This investment means that we’ll be able to increase production of our food to meet the increasing demand we’re experiencing.

“This is great news for Kellogg, great news for Pringles fans everywhere and great news for the team here in Kutno.”

The company said that it is actively involved with the local community, providing donations and funding charitable organisations such as The Kutno Foodbank.
