Cadbury opens its 3rd factory in Poland

11.02.2009

The Skarbimierz-based Cadbury plant producing chewing gums operates since autumn. The official opening ceremony took place on February 10th.

The newest Cadbury plant constructed in Poland is the concern’s most modern plant in the region and will provide European markets with chewing gums. The enterprise generated 300 new workplaces and contributed to making Poland, currently hosting three Cadbury plants and more facilities under construction, the concern’s major distribution centre in Europe.- said Judith Pickering, President of the Chewing Gum Factory, Cadbury Polska.
The plant located in Skarbimierz is the latest completed Project by Cadbury and at the same time the company’s most modern facility in the region. It manufactures products known and sold all over Europe, including brands like Trident, Stimorol, V6 i Hollywood.
It was the good location of Poland and the town of Skarbimierz itself, in the very centre of Europe as well as access to highly-qualified employees and well-developed transport infrastructure that helped the location outstrip other possible investment destinations. The construction process took round 1.5 year as the project began to be realised in 2006 and regular production stared in autumn last year.
The first Cadbury investment in Poland dates back to 1993. The first plant producing chocolate was constructed in Bielany Wroc³awskie (Kobierzyce). In 1999 the company acquired a historic Polish brand Wedel, together with a Warsaw-based Wedel factory, which has been modernised since 2007. To date, Cadbury invested in new lines for the production of one of the brand’s flagship products Ptasie Mleczko as well as in new laboratories and office space. Two first Cadbury companies have been hiring over 1600 people. In the upcoming months further 200 workplaces are to be created in all of the company’s facilities.
February 2008 saw announcement of another Cadbury investment in Poland. The project which is to be realised near Wroc³aw, estimated to cost 250 million EUR, received support from the Polish Government. The planned actions include expansion of the factory in Bielany Wroc³awskie (to be completed by the 4thQ of the year) as well as a the construction of a new chocolate factory in Skarbimierz, which is to be opened in 2010 and will be located next to the facility producing chewing gums.
Last year the Polish Information and Foreign Investment Agency rewarded Cadbury with the title of the biggest foreign investor of the year in Poland. (Cadbury)
