The facilities, 2000 refrigerated square meters, currently process 1.4 million pounds of meat per month which is distributed to more than 80 Hiper Paiz, Despensa de Don Juan and Despensa Familiar stores throughout the country.
The executive president of Wal-Mart Central America, Ignacio Perez, said that the project, in which the American chain has invested 6 million 800 thousand dollars, will employ between 150 to 200 workers. "Some will be butchers that work in our stores and who will be transferred to this facility and others are new positions that have been created."
The investment of $1 million for the new Despensa Familiar (Family Pantry) store is part of the company’s expansion and investment plan in the country.
The operations manager of Family Pantries, Fabricio Molina, told La Prensa Gráfica: "In the next six months, the corporation (Wal-Mart Central America) will be opening six more stores which will be located in various parts of the country, including the capital.
The supermarket chain is plannning to open 22 stores during 2009 in Central America, generating about 1,000 job openings.
The press release published by Siglo 21 on its website states: "In a year when the region's economic environment is showing itself to be extremely challenging, this level of growth and investment demonstrates the company's commitment to the welfare of Central American families, with a greater operating efficiency that will allow it to continue offering the lowest prices to its customers."
