About the client
Spanish pork processor Grup Baucells Alimentació is one of the leading meat export companies in Spain
Baucells was struggeling with give-away in packages of large products. So the challenge was to increase exports and profits by reducing give-away in large packages of pork products for the Asian markets.
With a tailor-made Cabinplant Multibatcher installed, the client can efficiently handle portion sizes up to 34 kg (75 lbs) at high speeds. Precise combinatorial weighing allows the client to produce up to 12 batches per minute with significantly less give-away.
Packages of larger products such as hind feet, backbones and ribs are now weighed out with +/- 30 g accuracy, a significant improvement from their previous solution, reducing give-away and increasing overall yield.
How much can you save?
By reducing give-away at an average of 75 g (2.65 oz) per package, the client achieved an estimated savings of €180,000 ($210,000) in one year after installation.
