Unilever Magyarország Completes Expansion at Ice Cream Plant
Unilever Magyarország has finished a HUF 10 billion expansion at its ice cream plant in Veszprém, doubling its capacity to turn out Magnum brand products, communications director Kálmán Molnár told state news wire MTI on Friday.
The company added a 3,400sqm plant with a production line at the base, Molnár said. Annual capacity rose by 15 million liters from 80 million liters as a result, and is set to reach 110 million liters by 2026, he added.
The new production line will turn out 720 Magnum ice creams a minute, and annual production will approach 600 mln units.
Unilever's Magnum products generate one-third of the company's revenue from ice cream in Europe.
In addition to the plant in Veszprém, Unilever Magyarorszag has a household chemicals factory in Nyírbátor and a food plant in Röszke. Including its office in Budapest, Unilever Magyarország's headcount is over 1,400.
