How does Technology Transform Poultry and Meat Processing

Food and Beverages | Saturday, October 29, 2022

With the digital revolution, often known as the fourth technological revolution (4.0), emerging technologies are paving the way for a more progressive future vision.

FREMONT, CA: The expanding global population has boosted the need for meat production and accelerated the expansion of poultry industries worldwide. The poultry sector must make many improvements to its production and processing systems, considering farming sustainability and assuring high standards in poultry processing plants to fulfill the increased demand for chicken products. Technological advancements drastically altered production practices in all industries, including poultry farming.

Recent advancements in technological and engineering tools and materials, such as advanced sensors and sensing devices, data processing, and machine learning methods, provide effective tools for the poultry industry to optimize yield and material. Poultry processing line to track material flow throughout the entire process from farm to fork and to make decisions based on real-time constraints in material flow is essential. Manufacturing operations and energy consumption enable the poultry industry to create a more sustainable supply chain.

The rate of adoption technical advancements varies based on cost, infrastructure availability, cultural adaptation, and training requirements. We are currently experiencing the fourth technological and industrial revolution (technology 4.0), which involves the fusion of various technologies, such as robotics, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, autonomous systems, nanotechnologies, quantum computing, and a fully interconnected Internet of Things.

Through the integration of cyber-physical systems and wireless communication technologies that track poultry production in real-time and offer production data at different stages of the production process, Technology 4.0 can increase poultry processing efficiency and optimize material yield. The initial step in receiving raw materials is delivering live poultry from producers to the processing plant. A low-cost hardware system coupled with an easy analytics dashboard and the Internet of Things can determine the production line's precise quantity and speed.

In the production line, specialized software can choose the birds, manage flexible distribution, and minimize waste. Cutting and deboning are crucial for optimizing material yield. The pace and rhythm of each employee are manually slicing the breast and thighs, and the quantity of packaged and labeled products according to each order can monitor using real-time monitoring devices.
