Marel Poultry at VIV Asia 2019

Providing valuable new insights

Marel Poultry succeeded once again in attracting a big pack of people to its stand at VIV Asia in Bangkok. Especially the demonstrations and presentations worked out magnificently. During all three days, the crowded house created a perfect exhibition ambiance, and all visitors left our stand with new, fresh insights about poultry processing.

The audience visiting the Marel Poultry stand came from Thailand in the first place, followed by visitors from surrounding countries – especially Vietnam was far better represented than ever before – and from Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines and even China and India.

The clear explanations in this cutting- demo turned out to be very valuable food for thought for many professionals in the industry.


The impact of AMF-i

The running AMF-i configuration also aroused great interest. Automated, intelligent breast cap filleting is certainly a hot issue in South-East Asia, where labor availability is decreasing too, just like in the rest of the world. VIV Asia 2019 seems to be exactly the rightly timed moment for Marel Poultry to position AMF-i as the reference for breast cap filleting in South-East Asia. Many processors took the chance to see this solution at work and...
