Joint venture to open infant nutrition can manufacturing plant

December 23, 2019 / Emma Upshall

Dairy company Ausnutria and Trivium Packaging will build a new infant nutrition can manufacturing plant in 2020, to meet the increased demand for infant formula products. The new 10,000 metres-squared plus facility is a result of a €30 million joint investment between infant formula manufacturer Ausnutria and Trivium, a metal packaging producer. Located at Ausnutria’s production site in Heerenveen, the Netherlands, the plant will provide a ‘wall to wall’ integrated operation with Ausnutria’s current dry blending and packaging plants. According to the two companies, the facility will have the capacity to produce more than 150 million cans by 2021. Having a dedicated can manufacturing process on site will assure the companies of the stable supply of cans to Ausnutria’s factories in Heerenveen and Leeuwarden.
