Step strengthens regional strategy for eastern Germany
By joining forces, Vion wants to respond more effectively to the requirements and needs in the cattle market, while at the same time expanding its service offering to farmers. Vion Zucht- und Nutzvieh GmbH has been operating the cattle location in Duben in eastern Germany for many years. “It is in line with our regional strategy to strengthen the Vion abattoir in Altenburg and combine the purchase of cattle at the Duben and Bernsdorf locations, while keeping the transport distances for the cattle as short as possible. This is an important aspect for Vion regarding animal welfare and climate measures,” explains Dr. Holger Looft, managing director of Vion Zucht- und Nutzvieh.
Earlier this year, Vion launched its “Building Balanced Chains East” project to build a supply chain with ready-to-use products for retail businesses in the region.
“We are delighted about the positive result of our talks, which we can now share with our partners,” say Hermann and Ludwig Hausner, managing directors and owners of Hausner GmbH. “We are convinced that Vion Zucht- und Nutzvieh GmbH will continue to run the company successfully and in a forward-looking manner, and that our employees will feel at home and can develop as part of an international food company.”
