Kometos Oy has concluded an agreement to deliver a mobile slaughterhouse consisting of a set of three vehicle combination to the French company Le Boeuf Ethique SAS.

Kometos has delivered several mobile slaughterhouses. The slaughterhouse to be delivered to France provides beef cattle farmers an opportunity to have their cattle slaughtered at their own farms, helping thereby to avoid animal stress caused by transportation and large slaughterhouses.

“After a veterinary examination, the animal´s own caretaker takes the animal in a vehicle without rushing, making sure there comes no stress. The concept of ethical animal treatment improves animal welfare and meat quality, as well as profitability through proper branding. The number of people demanding the food produced by our operating model is large and constantly growing”, says Emilie Jeannin, CEO of Le Boeuf Ethique.

Kometos is investing in the US food technology market

  • Finncold - systems

With the Business Finland / Tempo project, Kometos has achieved commercial success in its pilot project in the US food technology market. Kometos is known worldwide as the market leader in the food thawing / tempering category.

In collaboration with U.S. subcontractors, a large food technology market is now opening up to North America. The first deliveries of thawing units will take place later this year to one of the largest restaurant chains in the United States. The thawing capacity of this unit is more than 20.000 kg / process.

Access to the North American food technology market has required the products to be modified to meet local authority- and user requirements, that differ significantly from European standards, e.g. for electrical systems.

Bus-controlled fans for the US market. The fans can be used to adjust the fan speed from 0 to 100%, which also reduces the thermal energy produced by the electric motor in the same proportion. This is one of the important properties in the controlled thawing of food e.g. when controlling the surface temperature of the product.
