The announcement of its closure by the Sodiaal cooperative last February had caused a shock for its 160 employees and the whole territory.

If the Candia dairy in Campbon (Loire-Atlantique) only has a few months left to live, the site will not remain empty for very long.

Monday, after several months of research and four "expressions of interest", the recently chosen buyer was officially presented.

It is the logistics company FM Logistic which will buy all the buildings, indicates the prefecture of Loire-Atlantique.

Present in France and abroad, this large group already operates around thirty logistics platforms in the country (such as at L'Herbergement in Vendée) from which it supplies the major retailers with a variety of products.

"The choice fell on this company because of its profile, the content, the durability and the solidity of the planned project, as well as the prospect of creating 150 jobs over three years, i.e. almost the equivalent of the jobs Candia”, specifies the prefecture.

To see if this timing will suit employees for some in urgent job search.
