The new plant of the company will be located on the territory of the Novosibirsk Industrial and Logistics Park and will become the third PepsiCo enterprise to produce salty snacks in Russia. The capacity of the new plant is over 60 thousand tons per year.
Travnikov said that PLP continues to develop and grow with new industries: “It is very important for the Government of the Novosibirsk region that such sites that are being created in the region are in demand by business and continue to be actively developed. The construction of the plant will give another impetus to the development of the economy.”
At the same time, an agricultural program is being launched aimed at providing the enterprise with local potatoes. Today, 100 percent of the raw materials used by the company are domestic. In the Novosibirsk region, several agricultural enterprises are already engaged in test cultivation of potatoes, which must meet the stringent requirements of the manufacturer.
