Sarval to invest £8m in Nottingham processing facility
Pet food market supplier of protein ingredients Sarval has announced an £8 million upgrade project to its animal by-product (ABP) processing facility in Nottingham, in a bid to ensure the “highest possible end-product quality”.
The investment will see the construction of a purpose-built centre equipped with “the latest technologies” on sieving and clarification that will process up to 3,000 tonnes of poultry every week.
The site is expected to process more than 200,000 tonnes of poultry by-products every year and is due to be operational by October 2017.
Commercial manager at Sarval Ashley Burdock noted: “Investing in state-of-the-art poultry processing line at our Nottingham facility will enable us to increase total capacity, as well as respond to increasing customer demand for low-carbon, single meat meal.”
The site will process high-quality poultry meat meal, high fat, as well as more than 50,000 tonnes of hydrolysed feather meal every year.
