Bunge concentrates margarine production in Karczew


Bunge, the global agribusiness and food company, will increase capacity at its Margarine Production Centre in Karczew near Warsaw later this year as a result of a phased closure of a factory of consumer margarine in Warsaw owned by its Polish subsidiary Kruszwica, it emerged on 10 April.

The move is part of a wider restructuring of Bunge’s Polish operations, which has already seen ZT Kruszwica assume responsibility for the sales and marketing of all consumer margarine brands made by the Karczew centre. Now the Karczew centre will concentrate margarine production in Poland, a move that is expected to bring substantial cost savings. The manufacturing agreement with Kruszwica is for an indefinite period and its value is estimated at PLN 140m (approx. €34m) over five years.

ZT Kruszwica is the largest processor of oil seeds and maker of vegetable fats in Poland and one of the largest in Central Europe.

Bunge has over 32,000 employees in 40 countries worldwide.
