LIMA Sales Jump in Asia and Middle East

ASIA & MIDDLE EAST - LIMA expects its sales in Asia to jump on the back of the formation of the Asean Economic Community (AEC) in 2015.

Roger America, Export Manager, said the sales in Asia have been expanding as population is growing fast with improved wealth. Thus people have tended to consume more meat which has driven demand and sales of Lima’s separators and deboners.

“And the upcoming AEC should be positive for everyone including us,” he added.

He also expected the sales to rise in Thailand as the country will resume the export of fresh chicken again in mid this year.

“There should be more fresh chicken to be deboned and cut-up in Thailand. So, we expect the sales to grow by 40 per cent from last year,” Mr America said.

Back from “Iran agro food” held in Tehran end of last May, Bernard Le Bris, General Manager of LIMA, observed the same trend in the Middle East area, in spite of the regional political unrest.

Some say that an indirect consequence of this dramatic situation is the desperate need for low cost protein to keep the consumers fed with reasonable priced meat products.

The LIMA range of “S” Separator is offering coverage of all market sectors in terms of volumes to be processed from modest capacities such as 200 kg/h up to the highest one like 13.000 kg/hour.

Among their many advantages, the ability of - even the smallest model - to cope with WHOLE birds, is very much appreciated by the industry.
