SPF Holding to build Ft 500 mln plant in Beled

France's SPF Holding, a global leader in flavoring and pet food manufacturing, has committed to building a new plant in Beled, northwest Hungary, investing at least Ft 500 million in a greenfield project, Mayor Mária Balogh said, adding that the deal was signed a few days ago.

SPF has been scouting potential locations in Slovakia and Hungary for more than a year in a bid to reduce manufacturing costs and better serve a growing customer base in Central Eastern Europe. The argument that finally tilted the balance in favor of Beled was the local presence of pet food manufacturer Organo PET Kft, one of SPF's major customers in the region.
SPF Hungary Kft expects to open the new plant at the end of 2006 with a staff of 15-20.
