From September 26th to 29th, Marel Poultry participated in the 25th Congreso LatinoAmericano de Avicultura (CLAA) in Guadalajara, Mexico. It turned out to be a great meeting of the Latin American poultry sector, with strong attention to Marel Poultry’s solutions.

We have received important clients from Central America and Andina Region, with very interesting projects in progress.

It was the perfect time to present what Marel Poultry has been developing in technology and innovation for the poultry industry in my region.

Profitability and productivity

CLAA took place in Mexico just a few weeks after several heavy earthquakes shook the country. Marel Poultry Account Sales Manager Alejandro Rodriguez says, “Even with the earthquakes that have affected several parts of the region in recent weeks, the Mexican poultry industry was strongly present at the event. This demonstrates a good momentum in the industry, where companies look for information on how to improve their processes and invest in solutions that offer profitability and productivity. That’s exactly what we can offer.”

Eye-catchers at CLAA

During the CLAA exhibition, Marel Poultry presented the Nuova VO-20 CrossCut Opener, which enables the creation of a typical rotisserie-ready product, much searched after in the Latam market.

The revolutionary Stork ATLAS live bird handling system including technologically advanced SmartStack module also attracted a lot of attention.  The same goes for the Stork Nuova eviscerators. In all parts of the world, they respond to local requirements; they can be adjusted in a very flexible way to even perform polyvalent processing with highest yield.

The Stork CAS SmoothFlow system, a most advanced, humane stunning method, making use of controlled atmosphere, has already been sold to important Latam processors, marking a major breakthrough in this market.

Last but not least, the intelligent Stork AMF-i system, which achieves high-yield adaptive filleting without human intervention needed, was an important eye-catcher.

The participants in the 25th Latin American Poultry Congress, held in Guadalajara, Jalisco, were updated with the latest knowledge, advances and information on the productive segment. In addition to the Scientific Program, the Commercial Exhibition was held with 160 exhibiting companies from all over the world.

CLAA received members of the Latin American Poultry Association (ALA) from 19 Latin American nations, and invited guests from at least 15 countries from other continents, with the aim of promoting the presence of the poultry products of the region in the world, as well as reducing the risks of poultry production.
