Starfrost bolsters Thai chicken production
UK equipment manufacturer Starfrost has supplied five spiral freezers to a leading chicken processor in Thailand as part of a major factory expansion. Based near Bangkok, Golden Foods Siam (GFS) manufactures a variety of chicken products, including raw processed meat and cooked added value ranges. GFS supplies retail and food service markets in the UK and Ireland, Continental Europe, Asia and the Middle East, as well as serving Thailand.
In 2011, GFS opened a brand new processing facility in order to significantly expand its cooked added value division. A key requirement for the new factory was an efficient freezing system for processing products, including marinated and coated chicken pieces and karaage, a Japanese delicacy.
UK-based freezing and chilling specialist Starfrost was awarded the contract. As an existing customer, GFS was once again impressed with Starfrost’s competitive price, as well as its ability to incorporate the very latest developments in freezing technology to meet processing requirements.
