Alliance Group’s new $15.2 million venison processing facility at Lorneville is expected to be operational in mid-2018. The facility is in a refurbished beef building and is funded with proceeds from selling Makarewa land. Alliance Chief Executive David Surveyor said a new plan included improved handling facilities, better configuration, increased slaughter board size, a wider boning room and a larger offal area.
