HKScan Corporation is centralising its Baltic poultry production at its renovated Tabasalu facility. The unit was officially inaugurated on September 23, 2013. As of the beginning of 2014, the Tabasalu facility will be responsible for slaughtering, cutting, deboning and processing of poultry meat for the entire Baltic region in HKScan Group.

The plant will take over the production of poultry products previously manufactured at the Loo facility near Tallinn.

The Tabasalu facility has been modernised and expanded in stages over the past few years. The last new lines are to be installed by the end of this year. The 13.5 mill. € investment will enable Tallegg to double its Baltic production capacity and respond to growing demand for poultry products in Estonia and export markets. The Tabasalu facility manufactures a range of products sold chiefly in the Baltic countries, including Tallegg fresh chicken products, smoked poultry products, marinated and oven products.

The expansion of the Tabasalu facility has increased its combined floor area by 5 000 m2, bringing it to a total of nearly 13 000 m2.
