Giblet processing

  • Adding maximum value to turkey giblets
  • Modular configuration
  • Maximum yield
  • Optimum hygiene


Harvesting turkey giblets the Marel way is really straightforward. Once drawn out of the carcass, inedible offal is separated manually from the valuable giblets, which can then be inspected, peeled (gizzards), washed and chilled.

For all stages in turkey giblet processing we offer solutions, such as giblet chillers and end of line equipment, e.g. weigh price labelers.

Gizzard processing system

Processing turkey gizzards can be a highly automated operation.

After evisceration, gizzards including viscera pack remnants are conveyed to the automatic gizzard harvester. It separates the gizzard from the intestine pack (when still attached), it cuts open the gizzard, removes its contents and peels it. A gizzard defattener can optionally be installed immediately after that.

Subsequently, a gizzard washer/conveyor screw carries the gizzards to the gizzard inspection/peeling table. In the end the gizzards can be chilled and packed.

All parts of the automatic gizzard processing system are connected to a central control cabinet.
