Picollo – La Corbeille (Belgium)

What first started as a small canned food factory soon became part of one of the biggest canned-food-producing-groups in Belgium, specialized in vegetables, soups and rice pudding cans. The original Piccolo factory changed hands in 2004 when it became part of the ‘La Corbeille’-group. In 2008 another takeover took place, incorporating the old Picollo factory into the large French Bonduelle group. That same year, after little over a century of production, the factory was closed because it did not meet today’s standards anymore, rendering thousands of employees jobless. This spacious factory has recently been demolished, freeing up space for commercial activities, small businesses and housing.
