McCain invests €17 mln in its Béthune facility

McCain is set to modernize its Béthune plant in Pas-de-Calais, to produce new packaging more suited to mass distribution and to “strengthen its competitiveness”, thanks to an investment of €17 mln.

The new investment package, which continues the €125 mln expenditure for a period of five years in France, should make it possible “to continue the modernization of the site, to create a new packaging line” and to set up “a new packaging for French fries, more suitable for mass distribution,“ according to a press release issued by McCain Foods.

“This investment of €17 mln in Béthune is the first in a series that will be deployed by McCain by 2026” to evolve towards “more modern and sustainable industrial production”, Erwin Pardon, president of McCain Europe, noted.

The Minister for Industry, Agnès Pannier-Runacher, not so long ago visited the Béthune site, a city hard hit by the closure of the Bridgestone tire plant, which employed nearly 900 people. In Bethune, where it has been established since 1986, McCain employs nearly 230 people, for two production lines, one for frozen fries, the other for dehydrated potato flakes.
