Shandong Boda and Shandong Dehui both choose Marel lines

Chinese poultry industry on the road to recovery

Nuova Viscera

With the coronavirus situation in China gradually improving, the catering sector is beginning to recover. Chinese processors Shandong Boda Food Co and Shandong Dehui Food Co have a long-term strategic vision for taking full advantage of the opportunities newly created. Both companies reached agreement with Marel to expand their processing capacities to 2 x 13,500bph [225 bpm].

China's gradual recovery has been followed by a sharp increase in orders for processed meat products. Consumption patterns will gradually change from traditional to fast and convenient, from prioritizing quantity to prioritizing quality and healthy eating. The proportion of poultry consumed will therefore further increase.


Shandong Boda and Shandong Dehui are two well-known companies with well-thought out plans for in-depth cooperation with Marel. They are both deeply committed to professionalizing their business and aim to substantially increase their production capacity.

Today, both projects are progressing efficiently. The production line at Shandong Dehui has been installed and was running smoothly for the Spring Festival of 2021. The production line at Shandong Boda will be installed soon.

Shandong Boda and Shandong Dehui have put their full trust in Marel as the sole supplier of their processing plants. In its turn, Marel has invested in a professional Chinese service operation to effectively help customers improve their processes and increase their production capacity.
