HKScan, the Nordic meat and food group, is investing close to €7 million in its Kristianstad plant in Sweden. This is one of the steps in HKScan’s strategic development of the entire value chain, from farm to fork. The investment further modernizes Sweden’s largest pig slaughterhouse and strengthens thereby further HKScan’s operational footprint.

“HKScan’s investment increases production efficiency, enhances work environment and improves food safety at the Kristianstad plant. The investment will also result in considerable energy savings and reduced water consumption. Simultaneously, it is an important step in HKScan’s strategic development roadmap of its operations and it supports the group’s ambition towards certifying the plant for export to China”, says Sami Sivuranta, EVP, Operations.

Previously, HKScan has made larger investments in the Kristianstad plant, which have improved animal welfare and enhanced food safety. This investment, focusing in the first section of the slaughter line, will complete the modernisation of the entire process.

HKScan’s strategy and its responsibility for the entire value chain, from farm to fork, entails a unique position in the Nordic food industry. With a strong consumer focus, the strategy emphasizes innovation, productivity and sustainability.

“In our home markets, HKScan is the link between tens of thousands of farmers and millions of consumers. By taking responsibility for the entire value chain, from farm to fork, we enable not only the consumers today, but also future generations, to enjoy sustainably and responsibly produced meat. With this investment we can further modernize our operations and better respond to consumer expectations regarding sustainable production,” says Sofia Hyléen Toresson, Executive Vice President, Sweden.
