The announcement fell on December 30, 2020 via a press release from the Bourgogne Franche-Comté Region: a major player in the agri-food industry will set up in the coming months in the Saoneor industrial park in Chalon-sur-Saône.

It is confirmed: a Spanish group, which for the moment wished to remain anonymous, will build in the Chalonnaise agglomeration, a factory 4.0 intended for the manufacture of food products for the French market, but also for Northern Italy, Switzerland, Germany and Benelux.

This is the culmination of support work from the Regional Economic Agency and Business France. An establishment made possible also thanks to the measures deployed within the framework of the recovery plans of the Region and the State.

♦ € 400,000 released by the region as part of its investment acceleration plan

♦ € 400,000 in public aid from the State

The agglomeration of Grand Chalon is contributing to this new establishment: it will cede land in the Saoneor area. A strategic location for the company's logistics.

From December 10, the President of the region, Marie-Guite Dufay, announced the news on social networks.

Start of work in 2021

After obtaining the necessary authorizations, work will begin during the last quarter of 2021. The site should be operational by the end of 2022.

From the start of its activity, the site provides for the creation of 80 to 100 direct and indirect jobs (related to production, robotics, administration, logistics, information systems, and maintenance). In the medium term, it could generate more than 200 jobs.
