Chicken slaughterhouse

Matijević has opened a state-of-the-art poultry slaughter facility. It is equipped with top-of-the-range STORK equipment, capacity 4,000 units/hr, i.e. 30,000 units per day. Production takes place on four separate conveyor lines. All operations are automated, from the hanging of poultry carcasses on the conveyor, to stunning, to packing in foil, polyethylene and polystyrene packaging. Poultry is chilled using modern technology, with a fresh water-spray moisturising system. The facility comprises cold-rooms with capacity for two days of operation. The facility has been built so as to allow the slaughter, chilling, cutting, packaging and freezing of poultry whilst complying with all veterinary and sanitary/hygienic requirements.

The HACCP system has also been introduced, which in addition to quality standards guarantees the safety of the chicken meat produced in our facility. Special attention is given to the quality and safety of the raw materials used, to general hygiene and to hygiene at the point of production. In parallel to this, accredited laboratories carry out regular microbiological and health analyses, spot-checking products and work surfaces.

Our objective is to produce a safe product that will meet the requirements of all our customers in terms of safety, quality and sensory and nutritional characteristics, that will meet the requirements of HACCP and current standards and legislation relating to food health and safety and the quality of meat and meat products.
