How we can help you

When it comes to processing and storing, meat, fish, and poultry each present their own unique requirements and challenges. But despite this, these three industries are facing a common issue.

Listeria. E. coli, Bacillus cereus, Campylobacter, Clostridium cereus and Salmonella are common bacteria which can be found on every food production line when it is not properly cleaned.

Excellent hygiene comes as standard

On all Cox & Plant production lines, excellent hygiene comes as standard. We have years of experience in the processing of fresh and frozen meats products.

Our stainless steel systems are considerably easier to clean, which means that there’s nowhere for bacteria to hide and thrive. Our smart engineering design practices ensure we operate best practice to ensure there are no unclean hidden areas where bacteria can grow.
