Monter is going to double its production capacity to supply cold meats to Mercadona stores across the country. The meat group, which is the main supplier of cold cuts to Mercadona, is going to build a factory spanning 30,000 m2 in Girona. The planned investment amounts to more than €20 million.
The complex will be located between Besalú and Sant Ferriol, in the province of Girona, and will be equipped with “the latest technology in terms of digitalisation and robotisation”, as reported by the company to Crónica Global. Cured pork and turkey cold meats will be manufactured at the plant.
With this new development, the company is going to increase its industrial assets in Cataluña to five, most of which are located in the region of La Garrotxa. Currently, Monter has plants in the Girona municipalities of Sant Jaume de Llierca, Les Planes d’Hostoles and Serinyà, and a fourth in the Barcelona city of Vic.
