Finnish poultry business Atria aims to improve the competitiveness and profitability, and increase the efficiency of its industrial operations, the company said in a press release.

The company is launching a development programme to improve the competitiveness and profitability of its poultry business, which will be implemented in phases.

In the first phase, Atria will start negotiations on changes in the poultry unit in Sahalahti in accordance with the collective redundancy law. The possible closure of the Sahalahti plant will be considered in the change negotiations. The change negotiations concern the entire workforce of the Sahalahti plant, approximately 130 people.

Atria's other production sites are not affected by the change negotiations to be launched. With the planned measures, Atria is aiming at total annual savings of around EUR 5 million. The savings are expected to be realised from the end of 2024 onwards.

In the second phase, negotiations will be launched in accordance with the collective redundancy law in the Nurmo poultry unit. The aim of these negotiations is to prepare for the commissioning of the new poultry plant and to prepare for the renewal of work tasks and working practices.
