Olymel may partner with ATRAHAN

Olymel and ATRAHAN Transformation Inc. say they talks to establish  a “business partnership” sometime this spring.

ATRAHAN currently has the capacity to slaughter almost one million pigs a year and exports its pork products to more than 50 countries.

The partnership would deal with pork processing.

Olymel has processing plants in four Canadian cities and collects about one-third of its annual sales from pork and poultry products exported to the United States, Japan and Australia.

The new partners expect to announce a more formal agreement by May 2015.

Olymel recently invested  $10 million to expand poultry processing.
