In Kutno, a new manufacturing line will be established. Originally expected to be completed by May 2021, the new line is fully operational a month ahead of schedule. The expanded capacity in the Kutno facility will increase production by 34 per cent, enabling the production of an additional 120 million cans of Pringles per year.
This new line will use the latest food production technology and the high-speed line will be highly efficient and environmentally friendly. Through state-of-the-art, sustainable design processes there is a reduced requirement for heating and other infrastructure in the factory. This increased efficiency on the new line will also help reduce food waste.

Currently the company is the biggest investor in the Lodz Special Economic Zone with more than EUR330 million invested since 2008, which has had a positive impact on the region, creating nearly 550 skilled roles.
