Taking the lead in innovative poultry processing

The 2017 AVI Africa trade show will be held from June 20th to 22nd at the Emperors Palace in Kempton Park, Johannesburg, South Africa. At its booth 82/83, Marel Poultry will take the lead in advancing food processing with innovative, solutions that add more value to poultry processes.

Multihead Weigher fresh poultry

For more than three decades, Marel Poultry has been supporting poultry processors in many African countries, from Tunisia and Sudan right down to South Africa. We will continue stimulating the industrialization of poultry processing in this part of the world, by offering tailor-made solutions for every situation. For all capacities, from 500 to 13,500 bph, we can take care of a precise adjustment of the level of process automation to the local needs.


At AVI Africa, Marel Poultry will present a number of innovative solutions, among which the Multihead Weigher. Thanks to advanced Innova Food Processing Software, the Marel Multihead Weighers – available for fresh or IQF products – can be turned into very versatile weighing and batching devices, handling multiple fixed-weight or catch-weight jobs at the same time. In this way a wide variety of products and batch sizes can be batched into bags and boxes at high capacities, with the option for the processor to prioritize jobs.

For reasons of food safety and efficient management, data collection is an important issue in today's poultry processing business. Assessment of individual products is under close attention of Marel Poultry, which offers advanced weighing and grading opportunities by means of the Stork SmartWeigher and IRIS vision inspection.

The multiple award-winning Stork SmartWeigher precisely weighs whole products at the highest line speeds. Weight information is used to grade whole products or determine how they are to be cut; this can be combined with other product quality data gathered by Stork IRIS. This Intelligent Reporting, Inspection and Selection system can assess whole products and its seven anatomic portions at multiple locations in the processing plant.
