As the Australian economy transitions from the mining boom, there is strong global demand for Australian high quality food produce.
The three Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) recently signed with China, Japan and South Korea present unprecedented openings for the Australian food industry.
And more food processors are now looking to the latest technology to fully capitalise on these opportunities.
Shocking images of alleged Australian cattle being sledgehammered to death in Vietnamese slaughterhouses has sent shockwaves throughout the western world.
Animal welfare groups have expressed concern at the treatment of animals pre-slaughter and the methods of slaughter. In developing countries animal welfare is not a high priority and often animals are raised in crowded conditions and are killed while still conscious. The demand for live animal exports is driven by religious or cultural requirements and a lack of refrigeration and cold chain facilities, however, these markets are shifting with urbanisation allowing for a market for processed meats.
Choosing the right process technology is the key to an efficient and successful supply chain.
Australian manufacturers face increasing pressure to get their products to market on time – and in compliance with industry standards.
And Australian food producers especially, need to get goods out of their storage facilities or warehouses and through the supply chain as quickly and efficiently as possible.
