Food Safety, Ergonomics, Efficiency, and Utility savings are critical activities that go hand-in-hand. One of the most effective food safety interventions is to remove high risk material from a beef carcass by physical removal. This physical removal also prepares the carcass surface for intervention strategies and improves their effectiveness.
Ergonomic improvements reduce health care costs and improve employee morale and well being. A modification of carcass dressing process will reduce labor throughout your slaughter and fabrication processes.
The Maximized Carcass Dress Process will reduce the energy and water consumption through optimum timing of activities during the carcass chilling process. When these activities are coordinated, a company could see an effective 5 to 10% reduction in operational cost of doing business.
