Holmgren said more than 100 workers were working in the building at the time of the fire.
All were able to get out safely.
Holmegren says it’s too early to say what kind of reconstruction could take place.
“There’s a downside, yes,” he said over the phone, “so we have to evaluate how quickly we can rebuild. Everyone is very committed, everyone is safe and at home with their families at the moment.” And we will support them through it. ”
Contrary to previous reports, there is no concern about plant exposure to chlorine or chemicals.

The company has issued a statement on its Facebook page regarding the incident.
Today the festive meals experienced a heartbreaking event. As many of you have seen in the news, there is a terrible fire in our plant. We are happy to announce that all employees were able to evacuate quickly and safely without any injuries.
We want to thank all the firefighters and emergency response teams who came out today to help.
