Maelor Foods, a related company of Salisbury Poultry (Midlands), has selected Marel Poultry to supply its brand new 13,500 bph poultry processing plant in Wrexham. It is the first, completely new, state-of-the-art plant at this line speed in the UK.

After the purchase of the former cheese dairy from First Milk near Wrexham in North Wales, Maelor Foods decided to transform the site into a brand new poultry processing plant. It will feature a 13,500 bph broiler primary line from live bird handling on to distribution for whole birds to serve Salisbury Poultry (Bilston factory) for cut up and deboning portions. There will also be further deboning at the Wrexham plant itself, which has more space and more capacity for Maelor Foods to grow its business.

This is the first new, ultramodern plant to be built in the UK at this line speed, setting new standards for the industry. Marel Poultry will supply a complete kill and evisceration department, incorporating fully automated giblet and feet processing. Besides that, a Stork in-line air chilling tunnel and an elaborate grading line will be installed.

The 13,500 bph capacity is an initial start-up speed; the primary line will be prepared for future growth of Maelor Foods’ operations. Jeff Donald, Marel Poultry Area Sales manager, says, “For this project Maelor Foods has selected Marel Poultry as the most capable supplier who understands the company’s needs and has the ability to deliver a factory process fit for the future. We look forward tremendously to completing this project during 2017.”

Salisbury Poultry was founded in 1989 by Raj Mehta. The company began with 10 employees supplying local wholesalers and restaurants from its centrally located West Midlands base. Salisbury Poultry has shown year-on-year growth and now operates from modern purpose built production facilities and distribution centers, employing over 500 people.

As a part of Salisbury Poultry, Maelor Foods recently achieved “AA” BRC/SAI global accreditation together with full Red Tractor Approval.
