Better food hygiene and more value adding in focus in South Africa.
There is no doubt that the South African authorities want a high level of hygiene in the local foods. The focus on public health and food security in the country call for more broad investments in hygienic slaughterhouses and meat processing plants. Specially in the smaller slaughter slabs you find difficulties meeting the increasing standards. But implementing a new and higher standard will add cost, and who should pay?
Subsidies could push a faster sector movement – but it will not last in the long run. Markets must pay for the increasing cost.
For the individual slaughterhouse, value addition to their products will be the answer if you have access to markets. But how do you do that in a non-industrial scale?
One of the answers could be a modular slaughterhouse setup. A modular system that allows you to start small and grow step by step into international standards. This will allow you to gradually invest in your setup as the business grows instead of investing in a future-proof setup from the beginning.
Of course, there is a need for more than technical facilities. How to act and manage should follow, so training and supervision is essential for a good result. Also, product development should be a part of the plan for the individual slaughterhouse or meat processing plant. Developing the right products for the right markets is essential for a healthy meat business.
It seems that the meat market in South African is moving fast and with increased focus on higher standards and more value-added products – so now is a great time to get involved.
There are at least 3 good reasons why decentralized slaughter is in focus in Australia.
Australian livestock producers have in recent years put a lot of focus on local slaughter of animals and processing of meat. There are various reasons why farmers and other stakeholders see this solution as the preferred one.
The logistical conditions are one of the arguments. It is well known that long-distance transport of live animals, challenges meat quality, animal welfare, and costs.
Another argument is that more and more consumers want more locally produced products on their plates. A local production with local slaughter and processing provides a greater brand value when the products are to be sold to customers.
A third but often somewhat overlooked argument is the protection against disease. Animal transports that drive to and from several different properties risk spreading infection, even if cleaning and disinfection are carried out. All over the world there is a tendency to avoid the transport of live animals for that reason. In particular, the flare-up of African swine fever among pig producers in Eastern Europe and Asia has intensified this trend in recent years.
