Mydibel Fresh has announced plans to build a new plant in Mouscron, Belgium. According to the official press statement, the construction is part of the company’s strategy of sustainable development, Potato Business reports.
The factory is expected to become operational in autumn 2020 and will produce chilled pre-fried fries. The new project will be located next to Gramybel, the plant producing potato granules and flakes, on the site Anne Franck street in Mouscron.
The company continues its development with sustainability at the forefront.
According to Mydibel, the bypass streams of production are processed to generate 90% of the energy needs. The digestate resulting from the transformation of potato waste into gas is then being transformed into organic fertilizer called Myfert, which farmers can use on their potato fields.
