Cerealis has invested seven million euros in the expansion of its cereal factory in Trofa. With this investment, the Cerealis Production Center wins a production line of cereal bars and automates the end-processing of the breakfast cereal packaging lines, announced the agri-food group led by José Marques de Amorim.
In a statement, the group added that it will now develop the portfolio of products of the Nacional brand with a new range of cereal bars, which should “make a strong contribution to reducing imports from this category of products.”
With five production lines, the Trofa factory now has a daily production capacity of around 80 tons and stays close to an automated warehouse with capacity for 10 thousand pallets.
Cerealis, which owns brands like Nacional and Milaneza, and operates in four product ranges – biscuits, breakfast cereals, pasta and flours – has five production centers in Portugal. In addition to the giant factory center in Maia, the company also owns other factories in Oporto, Lisbon and Trofa (cereals).
It employs around 700 people and has sales close to 15 million euros, 25% of which are exported.
