Monrovia Agro Foods has the distinction of being the first company in the world to launch a fully automated Jhatka / Non Halal (Instantaneous strike/ A bird or animal killed by a single strike of blade ) plant. In this process the bird/animal would be instantaneous severing of the head of an animal with a single stroke of a knife/blade,with the underlying intention of killing the animal whilst causing it minimal suffering. We will ensure that the birds/animals would be treated humanely and stunned before slaughter. Our products have been certified as Jhatka /Non Halal (single stroke) & FORT (Free Of Rituals & Torture) by the Live Value Foundation, Delhi and are incidentally the first company in the country to be conferred with this certification.
Set in a sprawling land mass of over 55 acres in Bhandgaon, Pune, our automated plant will initially start off with the slaughter of Chicken and Goat, wherein the resultant meat would be sold mostly in frozen form. Our conveyorized plant has the capacity to produce 10,000 whole dressed chickens per day.
Our management team comprises of senior people hand picked from the meat and processing industry.
We plan to make frozen processed raw meat as well as value added ready to eat products like sausages, salamis, ham, kebabs, tikkas, nuggets, burger patties, etc, which have a ready market in our country. There is a huge unsatiated demand for chicken and meat in our country.
