Poland: Warsaw (Puls Biznesu) On Thursday, Royal Canin, the French producer of healthy food for cats and dogs, will sign a framework agreement to build a plant in Niepolomice, near Krakow. On 10ha of land, the Frenchmen will build a EUR 50m plant where 150 people will be employed. Construction works will be launched in February.

We plan the plant to be launched in the middle of 2007. It is going to be the most modern plant of Royal Canin in the world, Laurent Devillers, Royal Canin Polska director said.

Stanislaw Kracik, Niepolomice mayor, believes that the company will cooperate with local farmers (the company is to producer several dozen tonnes annually of specialised products) and cooperants (including package producers). The land for Royal Canin was prepared by Malopolskie Parki Przemyslowe (MPP) which originally was created to buy land for MAN.

The German truck producer said in August that it would build a plant in Niepolomice for PLN 384m (EUR 97.5m) and employ 650 people there.

Royal Canin was founded in 1967 by a vet doctor Jean Cathary. In 2004, it had EUR 742m of sales. Its products are sold in 90 countries. In 2004, 2,200 people worked for the company. It has plants in France (2), South Africa, USA, Brazil, Argentina and Russia. New plants are being constructed in Poland, the UK and Canada.
