Successful poultry processors
identify challenges, benefits
Poultry processors will need to minimize waste and promote chicken's
benefits to fully satisfy consumer demand and grow market share.
EDUARDO CERVANTES LÓPEZ

Successfully producing processed
chicken not only means overcoming
processing challenges, but also fully
exploiting the meat's advantages.
For any chicken processing company wanting to
supply as much quality processed chicken as possible,
potential issues along the processing line must be addressed. Additionally, poultry companies need to be
continuously communicating with and responding to
consumers to understand what the consumer really
wants, as well as highlighting chicken's benefits.

Could vending machines help sell
processed chicken?

Demand for chicken meat continues to rise. While
responding to this demand will primarily be met by
growing more birds, it can also, in part, be satisfied by
reducing waste.

Poultry processing plants must minimize rejects.
Rejects are wasted saleable meat, and may be the result
of poor management processes during preslaughter or in
the poultry processing plant.
Reviewing operations and addressing any issues
would not only increase the total volume of meat produced, but also raise the yield per processed bird and
reduce cost per kilo of saleable meat - benefiting the
producer and consumer.
Poor capture, transport and waiting in the lairage
should all be considered to reduce the number of birds
that are harmed or that may be dead on arrival.
A review of operations, however, should not stop
there. There are several activities within the processing
plant that can result in losses when poorly managed.
Particular areas of concern are hanging on the overhead
conveyor, stunning and bleeding.
In the case of the latter, even if a bird has been
otherwise well-stunned and slaughtered, a poorly bled
chicken with a red appearance will often be rejected.
It is also important to ensure that whole birds are not
lost during processing - for example, by falling from
the shackles to the floor or becoming lost in the scalding
tank.

If birds are poorly handled during capture,
transport or hanging, this will be evident on the
processed carcass. Eduardo Cervantes López
