Bunge says French oilseed factory halted since March 11 due to strike

PARIS, March 18 (Reuters) - U.S. agribusiness group Bunge said in Monday that production at its oilseed crushing factory in Brest, France, has been halted since March 11 due to a strike by staff.

Production at the site, which mainly crushes imported soybeans, was stopped last Monday ahead of the strike action that began on March 12, Bunge said in a statement emailed to Reuters.

The factory in northwest France has a capacity to process 700,000 tonnes of oilseeds annually, it said. (Reporting by Valerie Parent Writing by Gus Trompiz Editing by Bate Felix)
