Europe’s most modern slaughter line completed in Nurmo 

A pig slaughterhouse equipped with cutting-edge technology is opened at the Nurmo plant. It secures Atria’s competitiveness in the EU pork market. 

Automated line doubles slaughter volumes

A pig slaughterhouse that doubles the pig processing volume is opened at the Nurmo food factory. The production facilities are almost tripled. 

The facilities are equipped with the latest technology, and the production line uses robotic automation. Attention is also paid to animal welfare and personnel’s working conditions.

The slaughterhouse, which costs more than 20 million euros, fulfils a major need: Nurmo already processes 35 per cent of Finland’s pigs.

Although the new pig slaughterhouse has a high level of automation, skilled workers are still needed.
