€2 million will be invested to increase the production capacities at Peris slaughterhouse, one of the renowned pork processing plants in Romania.

"We are ready to keep a constant flow of production, even if the current situation is to last longer than announced. We stick with our promise to deliver fast and without any disruptions fresh pig meat in our stores and partner stores in less than 30 hours from the slaughter of the animals", added Mr. Grama.
