Russia’s Healthy Farm invests in Meyn-Ishida solutions

19-07-2012 | | |

Healthy Farm, a Russian high quality food producer, has invested in the first Meyn-Ishida poultry processing solution in the Ural region.

With a total capacity of two 6,000 birds per hour processing lines Healthy Farm doubles her current production capacity to 152,000 birds per day. This increased capacity in combination with a state-of-the-art multihead weighing and batching line will allow Healthy Farm to further strengthen their market position. Healthy Farm was previously known as Ural Broiler.

Meyn will install a complete new processing line and will also extend the existing line, also installed by Meyn in 2009. The new universal multihead weighing & batching line from Ishida will provide a sophisticated solution for all steps in the packaging process.

Healthy Farm’s CEO Mr Evgeny Sergeevich Narukov: “We already dramatically reduced labour costs and increased the quality of our final product, with previous Meyn projects. Now with Meyn-Ishida we will also be reducing our give-away and increase product reliability considerably.”

At the moment, Healthy Farm is building additional housing capacity. The renewed high-tech plant will be running by the end of 2012.
