Mars Petcare expands North Germany production plant

Verden facility gains new production line, machines

Mars Petcare has expanded its plant in Verden, North Germany. At the start of 2014, the company commissioned a new production line for single-serve pouches at the facility. In the last nine months €17.4 million (US$23.6 million) has been invested in expanding the plant.

With new filling machines, high-bay systems and a new packing line, the plant expects to increase its capacity further in the future. "We are increasing our annual volume to over 50,000 metric tons in the single-serve portion segment," said Manfred Goetjes, production director at Mars Petcare. "That is an increase of 50%. We are thus responding to customers' wishes, as demand for single-serve packs is rising steadily."
