Bayernland invests in slicing
German dairy group Bayernland is investing €55 million to build new sliced cheese production on the grounds of its Käserei site in Bayreuth. The production in Bayreuth should begin in 2021, with a capacity estimated to be 40,000 tons. At the moment, the Bayreuth cheese dairy produces 16,000 tons of mozzarella and 7,000 tons of processed cheese per year.
The Bayernland group generates sales of €900 million, of which €560 million is attributable to the Bayreuth, Kemnath, Amberg and Regensburg plants.
