Food & Drink International - Winter 2017, Volume 2 - 65

Harrison Poultry
Harrison Poultry has three lines of
product that it sells to stores today, including its Golden Goodness product.
"That is our oldest brand," he says,
adding that the company also has its
Pollo Eldorado chicken and Al Marwah,
which is a halal product.

An Outstanding Facility
Harrison Poultry's recent investments
include updating its plant. "Over the
last several years, [nearly] every piece
of equipment has been changed out to
the most modern, available equipment,"
Bleth says.
This includes a computerized vision
grading system that allows Harrison
Poultry to evaluate each chicken. The
company can tell if there are any skin
tears or missing parts on each bird with
the help of cameras.

This grading system, which also allows the company to look at the weight
of each chicken, determines the optimum use of the bird to maximize value. "We use computerized processing
equipment in many locations throughout the plant to make economic decisions with several hundred chickens
per minute," Bleth says.
But the company has some more upgrades to make. "The only things left
to do in the entire building is putting in
new scalders, which are scheduled to
go in next spring," he reports. "We have
a very competitive modern facility."
Harrison Poultry's operations also are
in accordance with animal welfare programs and undergo regular inspections
by independent auditors and USDA.
"We're doing everything correctly in
terms of handling animals," Bleth asserts.

Essential Rewards
Like many, Harrison Poultry is coping
with a labor shortage. The company
copes by offering its employees benefits that most other poultry companies
do not, including two extra checks per
year. "We also give free insurance," he
adds. "There is no deductible for single
employees in their checks."
The company also plans to open a
wellness center on its site in January,
featuring a full-time practitioner and
pharmacy. "Our employees won't have
to punch out and go see a doctor for basic things," he says.
Bleth sees a strong future for Harrison Poultry as well as the poultry industry in the company's home state. "If
Georgia was a country by itself, we'd be
ranked seventh in poultry production,"
he says.
