Europe   Production was stopped last Monday ahead of strike action

Production at Bunge's oilseed factory in French port of Brest has been at a standstill for the past week due to a strike following a fire in a storage silo.

Production was stopped last Monday ahead of strike action which began on March 12, Bunge said in a statement emailed to Reuters.

The company did not detail the reasons for the ongoing strike. Local media reported the walkout was triggered by safety concerns regarding the fire, which also prompted salary demands.

The company is in the process of removing material from the silo affected by the fire and has decided to bring forward maintenance work for the four other silos at the site, it said.
