A fast-paced and expanding beef slaughter plant
Euro Farm Foods operates a beef slaughter plant at Cooksgrove, near Duleek in Co. Meath. Established in 2001, it initially operated as a small local abattoir.
But after substantial investment by the owners, the independently owned business was granted a licence to export its products. This began a period of expansion and the business grew rapidly over the next few years.
Since 2005 Euro Farm Foods has concentrated on the slaughter of cattle and providing carcass beef and offal products to customers in Ireland and abroad. Over the years, Euro Farm Foods has received various accreditation which acknowledges the high quality of its products.
They have been an Emydex customer since June 2011, when Euro Farm Foods decided to upgrade from their previous factory software system to Emydex’s Kill line and Carcass Management system. The Emydex lairage system in Euro Farm Foods links to both the AIMs and Bord Bia’s Quality Assurance systems in real-time, retrieving and verifying animal details, as well as farm quality assured status.
Their upgraded kill line includes an ear-tag sequencer, Grading/Weighing Stations, as well as Carcass Dispatch and Offal Packing terminals. Euro Farm Foods operate Emydex’s multi-currency Cattle payments system for animal settlements and cheque/remittance printing.
The payments module also provides Euro Farm with the functionality to interface with their financial software package. So now Euro Farm Foods can benefit from accurate and reliable business reporting, stock controls, traceability and quality information.
What Euro Farm Foods Says
"We were impressed by the product and the people that are Emydex. It was reassuring to discuss our needs with people who knew and understood our business. This worked particularly well during the development of the cattle payments module. Difficulties encountered during implementation weren't allowed become problems."
