Kraft closes Romanian confectionery plant

- Last updated on GMT

Kraft Foods has moved confectionery production from Brasov, Romania to Svoge, Bulgaria with the loss of more than 220 jobs, the company has said.

The move follows a BGN40m (€20.45m) investment in the Bulgarian facility in September, which Kraft said confirms its “strategic interest in Southeast Europe.”

The company said that the majority of production would be taken up by its Bulgarian factory, including the manufacture of its popular Romanian chocolate brand, Poiana.
