Faced with varying grading and sorting requirements, Hybro Foods needed equipment that would grade different weights of processed whole birds and portions. After considering a range of possible suppliers and products, they chose the Marel Compact Grader because of its economic price, compact design, and speed, as well as Marel Stork’s deep understanding of the poultry industry and reliable after sales support.

As one of the preferred chicken suppliers in Mumbai, Hybro Foods Private Limited has been supplying its customers with chicken products for over a decade, and the Hybro brand is now renowned in the poultry business for its commitment and product quality. Headed by Managing Director Mr. Shaukat Shaikh, the firm has seen extraordinary growth, becoming the preferred choice for many of the five star hotels, flight kitchens, supermarkets, and retailers in and around Mumbai.
