HKScan Opens its Modernised Kristianstad Plant in Sweden

HKScan, the Nordic meat and meals company, has opened its modernised plant at Kristianstad in Sweden. An investment of almost €7 million has enabled an upgrading of the site, but also important energy savings, enhanced food safety and increased production efficiency.

“This is a state-of-the art project and an investment that both improves our work environment and the quality of the food and our products. It also enhances the efficiency in the production line,” says Tero Hemmilä (pictured left), chief executive of HKScan.

HKScan’s Kristianstad plant is Sweden’s largest pig slaughterhouse. The plant was built in 1974 but has been re-built and modernised over the years to improve animal welfare and enhance food safety. The recent investment completes the modernisation of the entire production line. The investment marks an important step in HKScan’s strategic development of its operations and it supports the group’s ambition towards certifying the plant for export to China.

“Not only have we upgraded the whole production process, the investment has also enabled important energy savings and reduced water consumption. Altogether, this is an important part of our strategic development and our entire value chain, from farm to fork. This investment allows us to produce responsibly and even more sustainable meat products for our customers,” says Sofia Hyléen Toresson (pictured right), executive vice president, Sweden at HKScan.

In addition to the slaughtering, the Kristianstad produces more than 250 different meat and deli products. Last year the site produced more than one million Christmas hams.
