Pini invests 70 million euros in a new slaughterhouse in Spain


Construction at the slaughterhouse will begin next November and it will be fully functional by 2019.

The company plans to hire 600 people initially and to reach 1,600 employees after they will continue to expand in the area, if the Spanish market meets the group's expectations.

In phase one of Pini's project, nearly 3 million pigs will be slaughtered per year, which could increase to a figure of six million pigs annually when the slaughterhouse will reach its full capacity.

The head of the company, Piero Pini, declared during a conference that the chosen location for the slaughterhouse is strategic, being situated between the provinces of Huesca, Zaragoza, Lleida and Barcelona. All this provinces account for 18.6% of Spain's pig production. Piero Pini added that the group plans to export pork products to China and Japan, but that most of the production will be destined for the local consumers.
