"This is a great achievement, celebrated by the regional teams, for the importance of the project and for Marel's positioning in Mexico and throughout Latin America," says Regional Sales Director Meat LATAM, Fernando Roos.
Marel and Loneg worked together to develop a complete processing line, from the arrival of the live animal to end-product dispatch. Both primary and secondary lines will utilize advanced, fully integrated solutions to ensure Loneg is future-ready.
The new, multifaceted facility merges Marel and Sulmaq portfolios providing Loneg with an advanced processing facility that suits their specific needs. The full line will include primary processing, viscera processing (offal treatment), carcass transport and cooling, quartering, Kosher salting, a carcass spraying system, cutting and deboning, and primary and secondary packaging.
In secondary processing, the StreamLine will be integral to the deboning and trimming system, providing optimal control and monitoring to maximize yields. Supported by Innova software, Loneg will have the flexibility to configure the system to meet customer-specific orders and improve production with real-time and historic monitoring and data collection of individual workstations.
The project will include innovations recently developed at Marel Guaporé, such as the 100% stainless steel air conveyance system, the Down Puller (a new hide removal system), the offal cooling by chiller, and the Rotate Clean 1000, among others.
