Leading Poultry Supplier

With increased demands on production the company needed to work faster and more efficiently and the blast freezing facilities needed to accommodate this ethos. AHR was called upon to help.

Background

This client specialises in the farming, processing, and distribution of Red Tractor certified and Halal certified poultry products to Blue Chip food manufacturers and wholesale Halal distributors. They were after cold storage for their meat processing.

With over 50 years experience, the company stands today as one of the UK’s long established-reliable poultry processors.

Located in the region of Lancashire, the independently owned family business operates from a purpose built, modern plant. The chickens are processed on a “just in time” basis. This ensures customers receive only the freshest product. The processing plant is a manufacturing centre of excellence. A BRC AA grade is currently held and is regularly audited by industry bodies such as Red Tractor.

The Challenge

The company leads the industry with its cost-effective way of manufacturing and competitive pricing. This has resulted in a significant increase in market share for the business.

Processing over one million birds each week, the business soon came to the realisation that it required additional blast freezing facilities on site. With increased demands on production the company needed to work faster and more efficiently. The blast freezing facilities needed to accommodate this ethos. AHR was called upon to help with the cold storage for their meat production.

The Solution

The specialist team at AHR specifically designed and installed a bespoke 40ft blast freezer unit holding over 22 pallets situated adjacent to the factory. The blast freezer allowed the halal specialist to cut and dice chicken with greater precision and in a faster time – enhancing productivity whilst also providing savings on costs and time.

The solution is on flexible rental terms which includes a service package and 24/7 maintenance.
