AutoFom in Belgium
- Friday, 24 September 2010
 

We are pleased to announce that Carometec is now entering the Belgian market for pig carcass classification as the company group COVAVEE has just purchased the first AutoFom in Belgium.
 
COVAVEE owns two pig slaughterhouses in Belgium, COVAMEAT and COMECO. It is at COVAMEAT in Heuvelland-Wijtschate that the first AutoFom III will be installed in October 2010. This is also where the national cut test for the EU approval of the AutoFom III for Belgium will take place and we expect to obtain the EU approval in the second half of 2011.
 
The installation of the second AutoFom III is scheduled to take place in Hogstraten-Meer during 2011.
 
Besides the advantages of automatic and objective classification COVAVEE expects a better sorting and utilization of the carcasses by acquiring the AutoFom III system.

3rd AutoFom in Poland
- Friday, 26 March 2010

The Italian meat packer Pini Group has purchased an AutoFom for their new slaughter plant in Poland. In 1982 Pini started up the production of bresaole in Italy and has since invested in a pig slaughter facility in Hungary - Hungarian Meat Kft - which today is the largest pig slaughterhouse in Hungary.

The new constructed meat factory is located in the centre of Poland in the town of Kutno between Poznan and Warsaw. With a slaughter capacity of 8.000 pigs per day it will be the largest pig production unit in the country. The new plant in Kutno will receive the first pigs for slaughter in Spring 2010 and when it reaches maximum capacity of approximately 2.000.000 pigs per year it will represent 10% of the Polish national annual slaughtering.

Carometec is already well represented in Poland with 2 AutoFom installations (Primefood and Skiba) and more than 40 slaughter houses using the handheld ultrasound grading system - UltraFom 300. The grading systems are serviced by our subsidiary company in Grodzisk-Mazowiecki near Warsaw.
