The company initially announced an interest in establishing its manufacturing plant in Luxembourg in 2016. It planned to establish one of Europe’s largest yoghurt factories in an industrial area near Bettembourg in southern Luxembourg, but decided against the investment in September 2020 due to environmental and economic concerns.
