Jul. 12, 2012 - Healthy Farm, one of the leading producers of high quality food products in Russia, has recently 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 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: "With previous Meyn projects, we already dramatically reduced labour costs and increased the quality of our final product. 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.
Healthy Farm manages its own broiler breeding facility and parent stock and is market leader in the Ural region. With the new name, Healthy Farm emphasises its high ecological compatibility of products and sustainable perspective in doing business. Consumers can find Healthy Farm products in retailer chains, supermarkets, smaller food shops as well as in Healthy Farms own sales points. Besides the Ural region, Healthy Farm also focuses on the Siberian region of Russia. With this investment, Healthy Farm anticipates to future growth, with export as one of her long-term goals.
