Mondelēz International plans to reopen a potato chip plant, located on the outskirts of Kyiv, that was damaged in the ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict, according to Reuters.

The facility, which was closed in March after suffering serious damage, will resume production while still undergoing repairs, a company spokesperson told Reuters.

The plant, located in Vyshhorod, produces the Ukrainian potato chip brand: Lyuks.

Mondelēz’s biscuit factory in the city of Trostyanets, in the Sumy Oblast province, will remain closed after suffering “significant damage” in February.
