The new unit will manufacture a full range of paper cups for cold and hot drinks. Manufacturing operations are expected to begin during 2018 and the unit is expected to employ approximately 50 employees. The unit will become part of the Foodservice Europe-Asia-Oceania business segment.
“Despite the recent political and economic turbulence, the foodservice market in Ukraine is growing and the country has an important role in many of our global key customers’ growth plans. In addition, Ukraine has an extensive transport infrastructure and is well placed to service the neighboring countries,” said Eric Le Lay, EVP, Foodservice Europe-Asia-Oceania.
