Secondary processing

Beef and pork processing companies are often confronted with low profit margins as a result of fluctuating supply from farmers on one side and pressure from powerful retailers on the other side.

Yield has a significant and direct impact on the bottom line, making it one of the most important KPIs in fresh meat processing. The cost structure of the industry means that 60-65% of final products costs stem from raw materials. Beef and pork processing companies therefore have to maintain complete control of yields at every stage of the deboning process – from carcass intake to product dispatch.

Additionally, the industry in general has to deal with increased costs as well as labor shortages. This has made it ever more vital for red meat processors to be able to efficiently control, monitor and measure virtually every aspect of their shop-floor operations. 

Marel Meat supplies innovative, flexible and scalable systems and software for red meat boning halls with focus on efficiency, sustainability and traceability.
