For many years, Marel Meat has worked closely with the meat industry, building up an extensive knowledge of meat processing and investing heavily in product development to create innovative equipment, systems and software for red meat processing – especially in the areas of slaughtering, deboning and trimming and case ready.
Marel Meat comprises three strategic centers with distinct meat knowledge:
- Lichtenvoorde, Holland – development, sales and service of solutions for primary processing
- Gardabaer, Iceland – development, sales and service of solutions for secondary processing
- Boxmeer, Holland – development, sales and service of solutions for secondary and further processing
Marel Meat has a dedicated R&D team to constantly ensure that we are providing the meat industry with the latest technology in processing equipment. We develop, market and support equipment for all stages of the meat processing value chain, covering the stages from live animal receipt through deboning and trimming to further processing or cutting and packing for dispatch. Our product portfolio ranges from single stand-alone equipment to integrated production lines and turnkey systems.
Our cutting edge equipment and software components help meat processors of all sizes, in all markets, to operate at peak productivity and enhance the overall quality and value of meat products.
We thrive on being close to our customers – experiencing and working with your daily meat processing environment. We believe knowledge, insight and close partnership will form the best solutions for you and us – and that together we can make meat processing stand out.
