New cattle slaughterhouse opened in Kauhajoki

Atria’s new slaughterhouse in Kauhajoki is the most modern in Europe. 

Better hygiene, safety at work and animal welfare

Atria centralises its cattle slaughtering and cutting operations in Kauhajoki. The facility combines the latest technology with Atria’s long experience in cattle slaughter.

Atria slaughters about a half of all cattle slaughtered in Finland.

The average slaughter weight of cattle is on the rise. The new technology enables Atria to hygienically process bigger animals than before. Along with efficiency, attention has been paid to animal welfare, hygienic working methods and safety at work.
