Tonnies moves investment to Spain
Tonnies plans to invest €75 million in a mega unit for pork in Calamocha, province of Aragon. The project, which is awaiting the integrated environmental authorization, would take about four years to be built. The pig industrial complex will have a pig slaughterhouse, cutting room and processing room, as well as offices, personnel services, a laboratory and other auxiliary buildings.
The future Calamocha pig slaughterhouse will be, as indicated in the basic project, of the latest generation and will reach a final production capacity of 10,000 pigs per day in two shifts. It will also have a cutting-edge cutting plant, assisted by robots, and which will meet the highest requirements for safety at work, as indicated.
At the same time, the construction of modern convenience or processed product production plant with packaging capabilities for the production of ready-to-eat pork products is planned in the planned investment space.
The report submitted by the German company indicates that the pork products obtained will be marketed in Spain and in the countries of the European Union. The sale of frozen pork cuts is also planned for export to Asia and other parts of the world on the basis of Tonnies' existing international sales markets.
