After the recent sale of meat company Enkco, Vivera Foodgroup only produces vegetable products. In order to fully benefit from the growth opportunities in this market, the company is expanding its investments in production capacity and product development.
As one of the first companies in the global meat industry, Group has finally said goodbye to meat. The group, which consists of Culifrost and the Dutch Tofu Company alongside Vivera, makes more than one million meat substitutes per week. This makes it one of the top three in Europe.
“Vegetable food is conquering the world, more and more consumers are discovering that they can be just as tasty as real meat and have many benefits. As a result of the sale, we can invest on a larger scale and thus give Vivera’s rapid international growth even more shape in the coming years, “says Willem van Weede, CEO.
Due to the growth perspective, a large proportion of the 100 employees of the Enkco sold to Van Loon Group remain with Vivera Foodgroup. The company considerably expands the production capacity of the factory in Holten in the third quarter. Investments in expansion of production capacity and new products are also structurally at a higher level.
