In addition to our strategy of continued investment (which has been the key element in Nutriva’s growth since it opened), the factory in Vila Nova de Poiares underwent a huge transformation in the second half of 2009. This meant acquiring another plot in the São Miguel Industrial Area and doubling the total floor area.
The aim of this new investment is to provide a global solution in the area of frozen dough, increasing our development and production capacity, not only in the areas of ready-made pastry and croissants, but also in the areas of traditional bread and desserts.
This new industrial production area includes a development laboratory, two production lines, a proving area, a chilling area, a cooking area, a frying area, a kneading area and a new administrative area. There is also an area for future expansion.
