RANDERS, Denmark – Danish Crown’s new beef cattle slaughterhouse Holsted, Denmark is up and running, the company noted.

Despite an hour-long stop in production, 547 cattle were slaughtered. This represents the highest number of animals slaughtered in a single day at the new plant. The company attributed the delay to problems with the computers that control the machinery.

Per Svane Knudsen, plant manager, said the plant is almost two-thirds of the way towards operating at full capacity. The goal is to slaughter 900 head of cattle per day.

“It’s going in the right direction, and steady progress is being made every day,” Knudsen said.

In May 2012, Danish Crown's board of directors approved an investment of approximately $88,257,480 to build Holsted facility. The plant is the first large cattle slaughterhouse to be built in Denmark for almost four decades.
