Duna-Doner to build Ft 500 mln meat-processing plant in Hungary

Recycling

Turkish-owned Duna-Doner will begin construction of a Ft 500 million (€2.14 million) meat-processing plant in Hungary, the business daily Napi Gazdaság reported on Tuesday.

Duna-Doner will begin construction of the 2,000-square-meter plant and attendant logistical center at a 1.4-hectare site located in the Makó (southeast Hungary) industrial park later this year, the newspaper wrote. The company will initially employ 60 people at the plant, which will supply Turkish restaurants in western Europe with meat for doner kebabs, according to Napi Gazdaság. Besides increasing demand in Hungary, the Turkish owner plans to gradually transfer production to Makó from its existing plant in Graz, Austria to benefit from lower costs, the daily reported.

Napi Gazdaság reported that the city of Makó will provide Ft 30 million in employment-creation support to Duna-Doner, which plans to eventually employ 100 people at the new facility. Duna-Doner intends purchase meat for the plant from local producers, the newspaper wrote.

The new plant is expected to have capacity to process 10 tons of meat per day, making it the largest such facility in the central and eastern European region, Napi reported. (MTI-Econews)
