Meat, Poultry & Fish

The Meat, Poultry and Fish sector covers a wide variety of different animal based protein products, which starts with raw, primary-processed meat (i.e. beef, pork, lamb), poultry (chicken or turkey), fish and seafood. It extends to secondary processing and beyond, which includes marinated, fermented or cooked meats, bacon, sausages and hot dogs, speciality meats, meat puddings, pâté and terrines, and includes ready to cook raw meat and fish products, whether they are fresh or frozen.

Challenges in this Sector

There are several significant challenges within the meat, poultry and fish sector:

  • Significant increase in the processing of the product with cutters, slicers, mincers, formers, etc. that increase the chance of stainless steel contamination caused by processing and packaging machine failure i.e. broken cutting blades.
  • Checking for the presence of erroneous bone or bone fragments in finished product
  • Cold, wet and harsh high-care environments, where hygiene, cleanliness and sanitation are of prime importance
  • Typically, vigorous washdown cleaning procedure of all machinery (including CIP and SIP) is used to remove loose food debris, and to prevent parasites and bacteria contamination
  • High salt content in products such as bacon and injected poultry, which make metal detection more challenging
  • Increase in ready to cook foil and metallized packaging
