Marel is the leading global provider of advanced processing systems and services to the poultry, meat and fish industries. The strong research and development strategy of Marel is supported by an annual investment of 6 to 7% of revenue in innovation. Highly qualified researchers and technicians, a great working relationship with leaders in the food processing industry and a pioneering mind set contribute to our successful product development that has kept Marel at the forefront of the industry during the last decades.

The company Marel Poultry focuses on the development, production, installation and services of poultry processing equipment. In the strategic R&D program of Marel Poultry, further mechanization and automation of current food processing systems is an important subject, as the state-of-the-art technology is more and more limited due to increased processing speeds, in combination with data processing and logistic challenges.
