After Halal slaughter, chickens are processed in the most hygienic and automated manner. During processing, the birds are washed inside out and our veterinarians constantly examine the birds to confirm they are wholesome. Cleaning is constant and each evening the entire operation is completely washed and sanitized. Only after very thorough inspection, the plant begins operation each day.
All chickens pass through veterinary inspection to confirm they are wholesome.
To keep a continuous check on quality, hygiene and food-safety, random samples are collected from the processing line for lab testing.
Some chickens are prepared to ship whole; others are packed as bone-in cuts or boneless products. Products for institutions such as fine hotels, restaurants, and international restaurant chains are cut according to their specific requirements and packed in K&N’s FoodService bulk packaging. Products for retail are packed in K&N's branded packaging and individually weighed, adding another step to K&N’s quality control.
Products are then blast frozen at a very low temperature of -30°C to ensure product freshness, taste and food-safety.
Some chickens are used for preparing our ready-to-cook and fully cooked chicken products using state-of-the-art meat preparation and production equipment. Choicest meat is carved and select ingredients
are added to our premium chicken meat, for preparing flavourful high-quality products.
