On a newly acquired piece of land, the Bell Food Group will build a production plant designed in accordance with the latest technology that incorporates its entire store of knowledge as one of the leading manufacturers of convenience products in Europe. The selected site offers an ideal logistical location with short delivery routes in Austria. In turn, this will enable use of a large proportion of regional raw materials. The ground-breaking ceremony is planned for September 2017 and the plant is expected to come on stream in the autumn of 2018. With this new production plant, the Bell Food Group aims to take advantage of the growing sales and market potential in Austria.
