Bloomberg – British foodstuff maker Omega Foodstuff Machines has said it will build a manufacturing facility in China, with plans to export its new foodstuff machines to India and Brazil.
The new factory will build on the $40 million expansion the company completed last year to expand production of its foodstamp machines.
The company will open a factory in Shenzhen, China, which will manufacture about 1,200 machines a month, it said in a statement.
In the past, Omega said it had planned to build an assembly plant in Mexico, where it has a factory that makes its foodstuff machines.
Omega has made a name for itself in the foodservice industry with its Omega foodstamps.
Its machines use organic ingredients sourced from local farmers to produce the best-quality, healthy food.
Its production line employs about 200 people, including 30 from India.
