Japanese Nissin Foods is to further expand its capacity in Kecskemét - VIDEO REPORT

nissinThe Japanese Nissin Foods, which makes instant pasta dishes, is expanding its capacity in Kecskemét. During the project, new machinery and equipment will be installed in the plant and the storage area will be expanded. The project of EUR 12 million to be realized by 2024 creates 20 new jobs while retaining 314 existing ones.

Nissin Europe was founded in the Netherlands 30 years ago and moved to Kecskemét in 2004. Since then, it has been the only European production unit for the company. 90% of the products manufactured here are exported to more than 20 countries. 54% of the raw materials used, including high quality local grain flour and packaging materials, are sourced from Hungarian suppliers.

In 2017, the company established a new plant in Hungary with a greenfield investment. The new production unit replacing the old factory hall meant a significant increase in capacity, so the size of the company has doubled in recent years.

In the current project, Nissin will install new machinery and equipment to increase production capacity and extend the product portfolio, while a new warehouse will also be built. As a result of developments ending in 2024, the company can serve the increased demand in Europe and create 20 new jobs on top of the current headcount of more than 300 employees.
