Beijing-based COFCO is one of the largest agriculture commerce, logistics, processing and production firms in the world that feeds nearly one quarter of the global population. Hongkong-enlisted CPMC, a COFCO subsidiary, has established Benepack Hungary Kft. with the purpose of building a new aluminum beverage can plant in Makó, located in Csongrád-Csanád county, next to the Serbian border.
CPMC’s first overseas greenfield project just broke ground that marks the latest phase of the EUR 65 million development. The investment will allow the company to produce 1 billion aluminum beverage cans a year to serve demand by multinational beverage manufacturers and brewers. The 24,000 square meter facility will provide products for the plants of the company’s partners in Hungary, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia and Austria.
The project will result in creating 120 new jobs, with production scheduled to start in the fall of 2024.
