Hilcona to invest CHF 120 million in Schaan
Hilcona will invest some 120 million Swiss francs in its facility in Schaan over the coming years to modernize the infrastructure and existing space.
Liechtenstein-based food producer Hilcona plans to undertake extensive modernization of its production facility in Schaan with an investment of 120 million Swiss francs over the coming years.
According to Hilcona, it is necessary to modernize the existing areas to state of the art in order to be able to grow in the future. In addition, the company’s management would like to increase sustainability with its master plan, which will involve optimizing resources and greening the rooftop.
“We can look back on very successful years and continuous sales growth,” Hilcona spokesperson Markus Amann is quoted in an article. In the future, Hilcona would also like to adapt more to changing consumer food preferences. In the past, the focus was on processed sausages, but convenience products such as prepared meals, pasta, salads and muesli are now becoming increasingly important.
Hilcona has belonged fully to the Bell Food Group, which is headquartered in Basel, since the beginning of May. The Bell Group intends to double its sales in the convenience food sector in the medium term, and the Hilcona facility in Schaan will play a key role in achieving this.
The investment plan will now be implemented over several stages. According to the article, 15 million francs have been approved for the first phase, and implementation of the further construction phases will depend on future market developments.
