US meat processing giant Cargill is investing US$5.5m in new technology for its Hazleten meat packaging plant to improve efficiency and product quality.

The new equipment to be installed at the 230,000sq ft facility includes an automated product line, an integrated network to centralise monitoring of equipment performance and production, an automated system for weighing and labelling products and automated steak trimming equipment.

Aaron Humes, Cargill complex manager at Hazleton, said: “We always strive for excellence and this new equipment will enable us to improve our performance, while also providing better ergonomics for workers by having a machine produce items that were previously made by hand. This investment will allow us to remain competitive and show what we can do to benefit our customers and their meat cases.”
