Visit from Lithuanian Minister of Foreign Affairs
Honour for Klasmann-Deilmann Šilutė
The Lithuanian Minister of Foreign Affairs included a visit to Klasmann-Deilmann on a tour of the country. Together with the Mayor of Šilutė, he learned about the activities of our Lithuanian subsidiary.
The visit from Linas Linkevičius was a very special honour for Klasmann-Deilmann Šilutė, as it demonstrated the important role that our subsidiary plays in Lithuanian society. Klasmann-Deilmann Šilutė is one of the top employers in Klaipėda County. Our subsidiary gladly assumes the corporate social responsibility that this involves and appreciated the opportunity to present the company’s activities to the visiting local and national politicians.
Focal points that were discussed during the visit included the importance of growing media for the food industry, innovations, especially the search for even more sustainable products and solutions, and employee-related topics. This triggered lively discussions between the Lithuanian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mayor Vytautas Laurinaitis and Klasmann-Deilmann Šilutė representatives Kazimieras Kaminskas (Managing Director) and Virginijus Liepis (Technical Director).
Our colleagues then showed the politicians around the company. They inspected the production plant and also stopped off at our last major investment, “Factory no. 5”, where they had the chance to look at the different raw materials and products. There was also time to explain the finer points and differences that are not always obvious to the layman at first glance.
“We were very pleased to welcome these visitors. It was a great honour for all of us,” said Kazimieras Kaminskas. “We enjoyed constructive and in-depth discussions.”
