The earliest possible product assessment in the defeathering line enables monitoring of incoming flock quality.
High-tech devices such as visual assessment systems with high-speed cameras are gaining ground in the poultry processing sector, always with the aim of responding to changing food chain requirements. In addition, such devices help produce more efficiently, more effectively, more sustainably and differently.
Poultry processing companies are running increasingly higher capacities, with the demand for reliable insight into the quality of the incoming products. Because it is not very sustainable to fully downgrade an entire product due to one damaged piece, poultry processors look for ways to determine the quality per chicken part. For this, Marel Poultry has developed the computer-controlled Stork IRIS optical system. IRIS stands for Intelligent Reporting, Inspection & Selection.
