Cabinplant, MULTIVAC and Meyn Food Processing Technology have completed a strategic alliance. Representatives of the companies signed a memorandum of understanding on May 4 at interpack, the international packaging trade fair.

Worldwide leaders in their industries, the companies have agreed on cooperation with the aim of offering their customers even greater benefits. The objective is to provide food producers with joint solutions—ranging from processing, filling and weighing of products through packaging—at a high-quality level.

Meyn is a market leader in complete solutions for poultry processing such as slaughtering and packing. The company plans and completes whole factories for all processing stages, including delivery of the living birds and dispatch of the packed products ready for sale.

Cabinplant caters to the food processing sector and specializes in the weighing, portioning and precise filling of products that are difficult to handle. The company supports customers in the meat, poultry, fruit and vegetable industries as well as those in the fish, seafood and convenience food sectors.

Packaging specialist MULTIVAC offers solutions for packing food products of all types and labeling/inspection of finished packs and secondary packaging. The company's strengths include the customized development of complete packaging lines and the integration of partner equipment.

The cooperation comprises two agreements: cooperation between Meyn, Cabinplant and MULTIVAC with a focus on poultry processing and cooperation between Cabinplant and MULTIVAC in projects and lines for ready meals, fish and meat. The alliance provides a large, worldwide service network that offers comprehensive support to customers. Joint development projects are also envisioned in the future.
