UNITED KINGDOM, Suffolk. For its new greenfield primary processing plant at Eye in Suffolk in the UK, Cranswick Poultry PLC has joined forces with Marel Poultry, who will install a 15,000 bph processing line.
The aim of this British company is to build one of the most advanced poultry processing plants in Europe. Marel Poultry is the ideal partner in this enterprise and will be supplying all machinery and technology from live bird handling right through to labeling.
Cranswick wants to operate the most efficient poultry process in the UK and Europe, supplying fresh poultry to leading UK retailers and other customers. Marel Poultry is well prepared and fully equipped to supply exactly the right solutions for this ambitious project, a state-of-the-art plant running effectively at 15,000 bph.
Marel Poultry will help Cranswick incorporate the highest standards in animal well-being. The very latest production techniques will drive operational efficiency to new heights. The process starts with ATLAS, the most advanced and humane live bird handling technology in the world. Hi-tech applications such as Nuova, LineLink, RoboBatcher, SensorX and Thigh Fillet System will also be installed.
The weighing and grading systems such as SmartWeigher and IRIS will assess each product and, working closely together with Innova Food Processing Software, will gather data, ensuring full traceability. With the integrated Innova solution, the British processor’s plant management will be able to control, monitor and report on the real-time status of production and yield.
