Portugal imports about 50% of pet food it consumes. With this new unit, our country became more autonomous in this sector, as the installed capacity can supply 60% of the domestic market and is in a position to export 30% of production.
In addition to these numbers, MAXIPET also produce premium pet food segment which is currently provided only by imported references.
