SWEDEN - HKScan has sold its small wholly-owned subsidiary Bertil Erikssons Slakteri AB to its Swedish associate Siljans Chark AB.
The move is part of HKScan’s structural reorganisation and development programme in Sweden.
HKScan owns a 39.3 per cent stake in Siljans Chark AB.
“We are striving to enhance our efficiency by centralising production at four state-of-the-art production sites, with Kristianstad specialising in pork slaughtering and cutting, Halmstad in sliced products and cold cuts, Linköping in beef and lamb slaughtering and cutting, and Skara in minced meat products.,” said Göran Holm, EVP in charge of HKScan’s Consumer Business in Scandinavia.
“The sale of Bertil Erikssons Slakteri in Bäsinge will streamline HKScan’s production structure.
“The deal will also consolidate Siljans Chark’s role as a leading local slaughterhouse in Ickholmen in Central Sweden, which will benefit local producers, consumers and at the same time improve our industrial structure and efficiency.”
HKScan’s strategy in Sweden is to streamline its operations structure and further invest in its brands and value-added offering.
