According to the Saxony-Anhalt Ministry of Economics, the food wholesaler Chefs Culinar Ost is investing 21,4 million euros in its location in Lützen (Burgenlandkreis). The state is supporting the project with a good 2 million euros, the ministry announced in Magdeburg on Wednesday. Probably by October 2022, an additional facility with a deep-freeze warehouse and office area is to be built in the industrial park in the Zorbau district. 40 additional jobs are expected.
According to the information provided by Zorbau, the company supplies foodstuffs to restaurants and large kitchens in Saxony-Anhalt, Saxony and Thuringia as well as parts of Brandenburg and the Czech Republic. The new construction of the additional deep-freeze warehouse should take account of the increased demand, it said. According to the information, work on the construction site has already started.
