HKScan, the Nordic meat group, has just opened its new, state-of-the-art poultry unit at Rauma in Finland. Valued at over €80 million, the new facility is the largest investment in HKScan’s history. Indeed, the state-of-the-art Rauma unit ranks among the most significant investments in the history of the Finnish food industry.

Jari Latvanen, president and chief executive of HKScan Group.

The new unit is the most sophisticated poultry processing plant in all of Europe. It was designed and built with a special focus on animal welfare and environmental efficiency. Construction of the new facility began early in 2016, and the project was completed on schedule. Pilot production is currently under way, with full-scale ramp-up to be completed by the end of the year.

The new, efficient unit will improve HKScan’s competitiveness and the overall profitability of the farm-to-fork chain, as well as give a boost to Finnish poultry farming and local employment.

“We will have the best available technology at our disposal, which will enable us to develop even more innovative Kariniemen® novelties for our home and export markets. The new unit will significantly boost our growth and strengthen our foothold in a product category that is strategically important to HKScan. We want to offer consumers tasty, responsibly produced foods that add convenience to their daily lives,” says Jari Latvanen, president and chief executive of HKScan. “Our added production capacity will offer local farmers the opportunity to expand and develop their business.”
