Marel and Cranswick to build the 'most advanced' poultry plant in Europe

The new plant will be equipped with Marel Poultry systems and solutions from live bird handling to the labeling equipment.

With the help of these systems, Cranswick will be able to process chicken at a line speed of 15,000 bph [250 bpm], "the fastest possible in the industry today". 

Cranswick, one of the UK’s leading producers of fresh pork, recently revealed its plan to diversify into other proteins. That’s why the company acquired Crown Chicken in Weybread. The plan is to expand its poultry activities in a brand new factory half an hour down the road at Eye in Suffolk.

The new £54 million ($69 million) processing facility on the Norfolk/Suffolk border could create up to 400 jobs for the region.
