The investment tripled the company's tomato processing capacity from 25,000 tons, said CEO Károly Molitorisz.
Prime Minister Viktor Orbán spoke at the inauguration ceremony.
Orbán said the value of European Union-funded investments in the next 6.5-7 years will come to about HUF 12,000 bln including the national co-funding, 60% of which will be spent on economic development.
