Poultry plants increasing profits
with circular model
From farm to final customers, chicken processors have numerous resources
that, when properly considered, can further contribute to profits.

Better use of resources in poultry processing can offer the possibility of increasing income and
make production more sustainable.
Demand for poultry meat is
expected to carry on rising as the

global population and incomes rise,
and poultry processors may need to
look more deeply at how they use
physical resources if further restrictions are not to be placed on them.
Poultry processors have
traditionally followed a linear
model - take, make, and dispose.
However, adopting a circular
approach with long-lasting
design, maintenance, repair,
reuse, remanufacturing,
refurbishing and recycling,
may help meet the forecast
demand for animal protein
as well as helping to boost
income.
However, when considering resources, those at
the disposal of any company
extend to far more than physical resources alone.

Value of the circular
economic model
A simple way of illustrating the
circular economic model can be
seen in the following.
If a flock is culled and buried
on-farm, there is the effort to dig
and fill ditches and ongoing risk of
contamination.

However, on-farm rendering
and transformation into meal for
subsequent inclusion into cattle feed
removes the ongoing risk of soil or
water contamination and offers a
potential income stream.
Similarly, rather than leaving
no-longer-used processing equipment within the processing facility,
its sale to a smaller processor would
bring the double benefit of not allowing all of the expenditure originally made in it to be lost, but also
would help the poultry industry as a
whole meet growing demand.
When investing in new equipment, it is worth considering whether that equipment can be added to
cope with changing demand.
Much of the equipment used in
poultry processing plants is made
from stainless steel, making it durable and long-lasting. Rather than replace such equipment as throughput
increases, many items of equipment
have been designed in such a way
that they can be extended to cope
with higher volumes. Remodeling
equipment in this way is cheaper
than full replacement and more
sustainable.
