Experts in projects for the meat industry

The meat industry has experienced significant growth in recent years, marked by upward trends in exports of all types of meat (pork, beef, poultry and sheep). In addition, the pandemic caused by COVID19 has also led the sector to adapt to a new situation, where domestic consumption has increased significantly. Likewise, the digitalization of these companies, as well as their adaptation to the different demands of the distribution market, have made this sector very dynamic. In recent years, new meat industries have been expanded throughout the entire meat processing cycle, until reaching what we know as the meat processing industries.

The meat industry is the leading industry in terms of turnover within the Spanish food industry, accounting for more than 28%, and has a very important weight not only in developed countries such as the United States, Spain and Germany, but also in emerging countries, where demand is expected to increase. Particularly noteworthy has been the African swine fever (ASF) outbreak, which has had a negative influence on production in Asian and Middle Eastern countries, resulting in the increasing import of meat products from these countries.

Therefore, from Cunovesa, we reinforce our experience and knowledge in this industry, in order to improve our engineering, food safety and construction services, adapting to new challenges. DWe develop projects for the meat industry from start to finish, providing value-added solutions to our customers, from the master plan to the implementation of the project. In addition to simplifying management, this option improves process efficiency by centralizing the coordination of the different agents involved in the project.

In this sense, we have designed and built industrial establishments linked to the transformation of meat, such as slaughterhouses, cutting rooms, sausage factories and meat processing.

International presence

Cunovesa Group has participated in international projects in Africa and adapted to the production standards of the country of origin. The latest works have been carried out in Angola, Morocco, Mauritania and Guinea, currently increasing the demand for these services on the African continent.

In the words of Josep Novellas, CEO of Cunovesa Group: “The meat industry needs to maintain a level of competitiveness that will enable it to meet the challenges of sustainability in the short and medium term”.
