Nutreco’s subsidiary for fresh poultry products in the Benelux, Pingo Poultry, announced that in the Netherlands a total of around 125 jobs (FTE) will be lost. Pingo Poultry will make every effort, in conjunction with the trade unions and works council, to re-employ as many employees as possible within its own company or other Nutreco companies.

Earlier this year, Nutreco announced that the consequences of the outbreak of Avian Influenza for the poultry sector necessitated a restructuring of its poultry activities in the Benelux.

Pingo Poultry plans to close the production location in Cuyk, while the activities in Mierlo (Brabant) will be expanded. The production in Goor (Overijssel) will be continued.

In the new situation for the Netherlands and Belgium, the company will employ approximately 1,040 employees at three production locations.
