Mars Polska has started the installation of a second production line at the factory in Błonie, the company announced. The expansion of the plant opened last year means the creation of about 100 new jobs. Some of them are already recruiting.
The wet pet food factory in Błonie is the fifth production plant of the international company in Poland. The first line of the investment worth over PLN 600 million was launched in 2022, providing over 200 jobs.
“Despite the dynamic situation in many markets and industries that we have been observing since the outbreak of the global pandemic, Mars has been consistently developing its operations in Poland. The construction of the first line of the new factory in Błonie went smoothly, we were actually increasing the scale of the investment all the time. Now it’s time to open a second line and another 100 full-time jobs. Mars is a very stable employer, even in times of crisis. This is due, among others, to the fact that it remains a private, family-owned company that has a lot of freedom in deciding on its investments,” said Maciej Woźny, director of the Mars factory in Błonie, quoted in the release.
In Poland, Mars has been operating and investing since 1992. Currently, Mars’ business in our country includes the Mars Wrigley segment (chocolate products, chewing gums, burbots and fruit candies, snacks, ice cream), Petcare (pet food) and Mars Global Services (shared service centers that provide HR, purchasing and financial services to Mars companies in many countries). Royal Canin is also part of the Mars business. In all factories and offices in Poland, Mars employs over 3,000 people.
