Meat & Poultry Processing

It is crucial that meat and poultry remain at a controlled temperature throughout the processing stages to preserve quality and bio-count. Processing elements at consistent temperatures means that the bacterial growth is inhibited and that overall quality of the finished product is maintained.

Meat and poultry processing explained…

In its liquid form CO2 counteracts the heat involved with the processing of meats and poultry. Injecting the CO2 into processing machinery ensures control is maintained over the temperature. Retaining a low temperature preserves quality and bio-count – a consumer and business-friendly solution.

Advantages of CO2 in Processing:

  • More cost-effective than other methods
  • Quality control – maintaining the same temperature throughout
  • Reduced waste – reduced spoilage of elements
  • Improved efficiency through quicker process
  • Improved quality of the meat i.e. redness, texture and freshness
  • Minimal chance of bacterial growth
