Grading and packing

The grading and packing department includes various solutions for weighing, grading, packing and distribution of birds and by-products. Distribute individual birds exactly where you need them based on grading types like weight or quality. Birds can be routed to specific drop-off and packing stations for further handling. The PMJ overhead in-line weighing and grading system categorises the product and gives it a certain quality. This will determine if the birds will be cut into parts or if they will be processed as a whole. Both cutted parts and whole birds can be accurately distributed by the PMJ weighing conveyor belt and processed by our solutions for packing and dispatch. Altogether with our equipment for internal transport and advanced software solutions, we guarantee a highly efficient and integrated end of line operation.

  • Routing based on your requirements
  • Perfect order fulfilment
  • Match orders with supply
