SARVAL completes £8m processing facility upgrade

04 December 2017

SARVAL, a supplier of protein ingredients to the pet food market, has completed a major upgrade project at its animal by-product (ABP) processing facility in Nottingham. 

The investment comprises a purpose-built centre, constructed to house dedicated processing equipment for specialist poultry products. Two new processing lines are capable of handling in excess of 3,500 tonnes of poultry every week. Best in class processing techniques and controls will guarantee the highest possible end product quality, in order to match the demands from pet care providers.

Ashley Burdock, commercial manager at SARVAL, said: “Investing in this new processing equipment and infrastructure reflects our ability to respond to increasing customer demand for poultry proteins and fats. The state-of-the-art facility will ensure the highest possible product standards, alongside product traceability and ethical practice systematic with a SARIA facility.”

The site is capable of processing more than 200,000 tonnes of poultry by-products every year. The resulting high-quality poultry meat meal, hydrolysed feather meal and poultry fat is used by some of the world’s leading pet food manufacturers in the production of premium product lines.
