Finnish meat company Atria Group Plc said on Monday (31 July) that the overlapping operations of its subsidiary Liha ja Sailyke Oy, its logistics company F-Logistiikka Oy and Atria Oy would be integrated and reorganised.

The integration would improve the efficiency of the productive operations of Atria's meal and meat product industry, as the distribution of work in the Nurmo and Forssa production plants would become clearly defined, according to the company.

Sausage production would be transferred from Forssa to Nurmo during 2007, while the production of all-meat products, cold cut products and convenience foods would continue at the Forssa production plant.

According to estimates the changes will result in 35 jobs being cut by the end of 2007.
