MCS Vágóhíd Kft. is established
MCS Slaughterhouse Ltd. is one of Hungary’s most modern slaughtering, deboning, cutting and packing plants operating cost efficiently with long-term sustainability that was implemented in the town of Mohács as a green-field project with a budget of HUF 21 billion in 2016.
The 26,000 m2 facility of the Mohács slaughterhouse, equipped with cutting edge technology, has a total annual slaughtering capacity of 1 million pigs and operates in compliance with the most stringent food safety and hygiene regulations.
Our plant, that employs nearly 700 people, produces chilled pork cuts and packaged meats for domestic sales and frozen meat products for export.
MCS Slaughterhouse Ltd. is a strategic partner of the Bonafarm Group and the base material supplier of Pick Szeged Co., that also belongs to the Group.
At our slaughterhouse, production can take into account and be flexibly tailored to actual market needs and offer a higher added value, which enables the high-level utilisation of market opportunities.
Capitalising on the benefits of the modern technology used and the available economies of scale, we aim at becoming a competitive player of the Hungarian and international markets.
Our facility can slaughter 3,200 pigs and 400 sows per shift and has a daily packaging capacity of 130 tons.
Our slaughterhouse provides the meat base material for Pick Szeged Co. The heavy sows slaughtered by us provide the base material for the production of the world-famous PICK Winter Salami and Mangalica products.
After deboning, the meat of objective pigs is sold as fresh minced meat or as different sliced, cut meat parts, in modified atmosphere or vacuum packaging.
Different deboning lines designed for different body parts are available in our facility, which significantly enhances our efficiency.
Higher technological speed significantly improves the quality of products as it enables the closed packaging of meat products within 1-2 hours after cutting and deboning.
