Álvaro dos Santos Silva, Presidente do Conselho de Administração da Sicasal

On 16 November Sicasal inaugurated the second stage of its Rebirth Project (Projeto Renascer) started two years ago, right after the fire that destroyed part of the company’s facilities.

Equipped with state-of-the-art technologies, Sicasal carried out several technical interventions that allowed them to double the installed capacity of their cooling installations, packaging washing centre, WWTP and of the cooling, freezing and stabilization chambers used in the processing of fresh meat. This investment of close to 5.5 million euros thus completes the second phase of the Rebirth Project.

Sicasal that has been operating for 45 years is the largest private industry in the region and currently employs close to 700 people. Between January and September 2013 the company created 42 new work posts and increased their sales 30%, versus the same period of 2012, corresponding to 85 million euros in net sales. Operational results show improvements in proportion to the evolution in sales.
