Kepak Group

Beef, Pork, Lamb
Ireland & Uk

The Kepak Group is one of Ireland’s largest red meat producer processing over 300,000 cattle, 1.5 million lambs and 25,000 tonnes of consumer foods per annum.

The group’s turnover is in excess of €750 million and they employ over 2000 people at 8 manufacturing plants located across Ireland and the UK.
Kepak are an Emydex customer since 2006 when Emydex’s production management software platform was rolled out in the group’s main beef & lamb processing plant in Clonee, Co Meath.

In Clonee, Emydex software monitors, controls and reports on beef production door to door from arrival at the factory gates, through kill line, carcass management, into boning, packing, warehousing and dispatch.

Emydex software has also been rolled out in Kepak’s beef processing plants in Ballymahon, Kilbeggan, Athleague and Hacketstown. The system is also live in Kepak’s lamb processing plant in Cork and Wakefield UK.

“What’s different about Emydex is you’re working with people who understand the demands of the food industry very well. Sometimes end users don’t always know what they want, Emydex have the ability to visualise an idea, without knowing the final solution, and see it through to completion. Our previous production management system was developed in-house. For Emydex to deliver a system to that offers the same level of flexibility, whilst at the same time being a totally reliable & robust solution, is testimony to how well Emydex software has been developed and deployed” Jim O’Neill, Group IT Manager, The Kepak Group
