Chicken of the Sea invests USD 1.4 million to improve processing facility

  (UNITED STATES, 8/9/2017)

Chicken of the Sea has made a USD 1.4 million investment in technology to upgrade its processing facility in Lyons, at Toombs County, Georgia.

The firm’s Board informed that upgrades include a new, high-speed vision system and new canning line, and will be completed by December 2017.

           

        In Sept 2016 Chicken of the Sea International has launched a digital traceability initiative allowing customers to trace the source, processing location and fishing method of their seafood, as part of its commitment to seafood sustainability.

The company opened the 200,000-square-foot canning facility in 2009, employing hundreds of employees and canning and packing thousands of cases of quality seafood daily.

“It’s exciting to continue to invest in Lyons and the local economy. These improvements expand the number of products produced in the Lyons plant and demonstrate our commitment to providing best-in-class production systems. These improvements build on our industry-leading digital traceability program that allow our consumers to trace their seafood throughout the supply chain process,” said Valentin Ramirez, president and CEO of Chicken of the Sea International.

          

According to Greg Riekhof, plant manager of Chicken of the Sea International Georgia Canning, the new capital improvement projects will boost overall plant efficiency.

“This new vision system brings an added level of dependability to the process that further strengthens our food safety program. The new canning system will also provide greater flexibility to deliver on packaging solutions for customers. All of us at the Georgia Canning plant appreciate the confidence Thai Union has in the facility and the ability of our plant to meet the changing needs of consumers,” Riekhof stressed.
