Meat & Poultry Freezing

Maintaining structure and integrity of meat and poultry during all stages of production through to transit is crucial, especially when freezing a range of products. Freezing various red meats along with chicken and pork needs to be carefully considered as each must be sustained at a different temperature to get the quality meat and poultry product that you require. Fortunately, IGC have the skills to ensure this.

Cryogenic Freezing for meat and poultry explained…

Using CO2 in the Cryogenic Freezing (CF) reduces large crystal count within meat products – normally formed during mechanical cooling – by freezing quickly and efficiently. The result is that the product tastes better and retains a better texture due to better preserving cell walls within the products. Using CO2 within this process can save space, quality and bio-count in meat and poultry products within your business.

Advantages of CO2 in CF:

  • More cost-effective than other methods
  • Improved efficiency through quicker process
  • Space-saving
  • Improved quality of the meat i.e. freshness, structure and texture
  • Minimal chance of bacterial growth
  • Low maintenance costs
