On the Go

A Full Plate

Big things are happening in Cootamundra as the Australian Meat Group (AMG) develops state-of-the-art infrastructure to produce high quality beef and lamb products for local and international markets. Read how Hoctor’s plate freezer technology will support AMG to realise its vision.

AMG founders, Joe Catalfamo and Gilbert Cabral are leveraging their decades of meat industry experience to realise the full potential of the Cootamundra site.

The duo was aware that Hoctor had site experience as contractors for the previous owners. We’d also worked with Joe and Gilbert at a Dandenong facility when they were part of the Tasman Group.

This time around we’re adding 6144 cartons to the existing four x 560 plate freezer. The project is a significant investment, which will raise total output capacity to 8384 cartons per day.

The Hoctor team will be assembling and installing the plate freezer with imported parts plus components we manufacture right here in Melbourne.

The project delivers a fully automatic load/unload system in a dehumidified room. There will also be improvements to reduce deflections on the plates, which strengthens the system for longer term stability.

The new freezers will be operational in late 2022. Hoctor is looking forward to supporting AMG to boost its capacity and market potential.
