Fresh meat products

Fresh meat products have not undergone a stage of microbiological stabilization like cooking or drying. Final products are stabilized with ingredients and additives for a short shelf life under refrigerated conditions. In addition, whole muscle is pumped for increased yield and drip loss control when cooked.  Fresh meat products include whole muscles through minced meat. Talk to us for assistance on increasing shelf life, improving yields, appearance and stability together with taste through various combinations of ingredients and additives.
