Wet petfood manufacturer De Haan Petfood has successfully restarted production of petfood at its facility in Nieuwkoop, the Netherlands, after an explosion on May 7 caused severe damage to the production line. In recent weeks, the damaged part of the line has been rebuilt and tested, allowing production to begin.

Production was temporarily stopped at the facility following an explosion in one of the retorts, in which under-pressure cans are sterilized. Shortly after, De Haan Petfood relocated part of its production to other petfood manufacturers in the Netherlands and Europe.
