“Our industry is under increasing competitive pressure to become more efficient, and constantly considering adjustments of our operations is inevitable for our future competitiveness”, says Werner Devinck, CEO of Lantmännen Unibake. “Consolidating our production on more modern sites will both simplify our European bakery operations and lead to increased efficiency”.
Lantmännen Unibake fully acknowledges the impact on the affected employees and is doing everything possible to ease that impact. We will provide support to find new jobs including potential employment at other Lantmännen Unibake facilities.
Lantmännen Unibake expects to gradually close down production at the three sites during 2020. The majority of production will be consolidated at other Lantmännen Unibake bakeries in the neighboring cities or countries.
