Optimisation of abattoirs and meat processing plants
Africa Food Safety offers consultancy which focuses on achieving better hygiene, minimal operating costs, and greater profit by optimizing buildings, plants, and production processes. Such measures are essential when rising competition, feed prices and costs for salaries and energy supplies mean that every penny must be turned to ensure a profit in the meat industry.
Many abattoirs have to invest in modernizing their buildings, production plants and processes to keep up with the market. Sometimes brand new facilities are required, in which case we can help with everything from testing existing facilities and advising on specifications, layout and hygienic design to preparing tender documents and payment plans as well as managing the contracting. Additionally, we help companies to achieve large savings by optimizing their utilization of resources – from raw materials and supplies to employees and production plants.
Optimized cutting and deboning processes
Despite unchanged costs for raw materials, energy consumption and salaries, etc. significant profit increases can be achieved by changing production methods, training and motivating employees, adjusting certain specifications and adapting production and facilities to the markets.
Profit increases can be achieved by implementing new technology and more efficient processes on the slaughter line and adjusting the staffing accordingly. For instance, Africa Food Safety’, consultants have ensured customers significant operational gains by optimizing their processes for cutting and deboning of pigs and cattle. Experience shows that method changes in the slaughter process can result in 1% profit increase per carcass, corresponding to 0.850 kg for pigs and 2.7 kg for oxen.
Long- and short-term possibilities
Through an audit of the existing production facilities and processes, we assess the potential for “fast findings” as well as the long-term possibilities for optimizing the production, reducing the operating costs and increasing the profit. If employee training and new technology implementation are needed, we prepare a detailed schedule in close dialogue with the customer which considers the customer’s needs and interferes as little as possible with the daily production.
An audit is a structured process which provides a critical overview of the current situation in a given area. Based on the audit findings we prepare a specific plan of action to help ensure that the suggestions for optimization are implemented. In this way, we help our customers optimize their production and achieve increased profits and/or better hygiene.
