Foodmate, an international poultry processing systems supplier, has acquired a controlling interest in Computerway Business Solutions Ltd. 

Computerway Business Solutions Ltd., the supplier of ChickSort Poultry, Weighing, Grading and Sorting systems, has operated alongside Foodmate for the last six years.

The partnership saw Foodmate’s worldwide sales of Cut-Up Systems grow at an unprecedented rate because of its innovative approach and rapid delivery of radical new solutions to the market, according to a press release from Foodmate.

Foodmate’s dedication to innovation, research and development coupled with Computerway Business Solutions’ proven track record in producing customer-focused software solutions has strengthened both companies, the press release stated. This logical progression to an even closer working relationship will allow both companies to realize their long-term goals of growth and innovation. 

Computerway Business Solutions Ltd will continue to trade from the United Kingdom with the existing management and staff under the new company name Foodmate UK Ltd.

This acquisition allows for significant investment both in the existing product portfolio including ChickSort, TraySort and DMS Lite and in the research and development of new software, weighing, vision and x-ray solutions.

The companies see Foodmate UK’s role becoming the software development arm of the Foodmate group of companies, providing a suite of software and control solutions that will allow Foodmate to position itself even more strongly to offer solutions throughout the entire processing plant.
