New Zealand Poultry Processor Invests in MTech Software

02 July 2013

NEW ZEALAND - MTech Systems — the global supplier of software for poultry, pig and animal feed industries — has reached agreement to supply Van Den Brink Poultry, one of the largest chicken processors in New Zealand.

Under the agreement MTech Systems will provide business advisory services over the next 12 months together with integrated software covering Van Den Brink broiler growing operations on North and South Islands.

“The broiler software will provide real time management information, costings and volume forecasting while automating grower settlement payments and giving the business scheduling of live birds to its processing facilities,” said Jim Johnston, Director of MTech Systems Europe.

“Following visits by Jim Johnston and Steve Parsons in February last year and again recently, we now have detailed plans covering areas for improvement across our whole business,” said John Timms, executive general manager of Van Den Brink Poultry. “This has contributed to our very good business results for two years running.

“What’s more, we conducted a comprehensive evaluation of MTech’s software modules and are now implementing the livestock module and also evaluating their other systems with a view toward implementing them once our review is complete.”

Van Den Brink is the third largest chicken processor in New Zealand and has been in business for over 60 years.
