HAK, one of the biggest vegetable brands in northern Europe, is shutting down the production for six weeks due to the high energy costs.
The Dutch vegetable and legume company will temporarily stop its production activities for six weeks from January due to energy costs, the company announced.
– With today’s energy prices, it is not feasible to continue producing in the winter – says the company’s press release, as reported by the Telegraf Biznis website.
– It’s not just the high prices, but also the uncertainty – said HAK director Timo Hoogeboom.
– Today, a cubic meter of gas costs EUR 2, sometimes 3. We don’t know what will happen in January or February. So, in order to remain safe, we will stay closed – said the director, who points out that the company will make a pause when the harvesting season is over.
Due to the energy crisis, HAK, which, in the harvesting season, takes vegetables from the farms and then preserves it in glass containers, says that the heating needed for that process consumes a lot of energy.
They also say that the glass jars that the company uses are more expensive due to the increased prices of energy.
