DÜSSELDORF, Germany – Meyn Food Processing Technology B.V., Cabinplant A/S and MULTI-VAC Sepp Haggenmüller SE & Co. KG announced the completion of a strategic alliance.
Representatives from the companies signed a memorandum of understanding at interpack, the international packaging trade fair. The three companies have agreed on cooperation with an aim at providing greater benefits to their customers. The goal is to offer food producers complete solutions ranging from processing, filling and weighing of products right through to packaging, at a level of combined quality that has never previously been available on the market. The companies expect significant synergy.
Meyn leads the market in complete poultry processing solutions ranging from live bird arrival to packing. The company plans and completes whole factories — for all processing stages from the delivery of the living birds through to the dispatch of the packed products ready for sale.
Cabinplant works in the food processing sector specializing in weighing, portioning and precise filling of products that are difficult to handle. The company supports the meat, poultry, fruit and vegetable industries as well as those in the fish, seafood and convenience food sectors.
Multivac is a packaging specialist offering solutions for packing food products of all types, as well as for the labelling and inspection of finished packs and secondary packaging.
The cooperation includes two agreements. The first is a focus on poultry processing by all three companies and the second is cooperation between Cabinplant and Multivac regarding projects and lines for ready meals, fish and meat.
The alliance extends around the globe and presently the three companies share a worldwide service network that creates the ability to offer customers comprehensive support. Joint development projects are also expected in the future.
