Development goals to gear up the meat industry towards 2025

The meat industry’s raison d’être is challenged by consumers all over the world. Competition is fiercer than ever, and consumer demands in terms of e.g. working environment, animal welfare and traceability are increasing every day. Therefore, Danish Technological Institute has launched 10 development goals, aiming to help the industry to develop and implement the right solutions to overcome the challenges.

The new development goals were launched at the food tech fair IFFA earlier this month, and they all aim at either cutting costs, increasing quality or minimizing the environmental impact from the production processes of pork.

The 10 goals are:

  1. Technology and cleaning procedures support 24/7 production
  2. 50 pct. lower water consumption
  3. Conversion of transport from frozen to superchill
  4. Production technologies support small series products
  5. Elimination of stressful working operations
  6. Efficiency improvement of 30 pct.
  7. Maximum lead time of 17 hours
  8. 25 pct. lower energy consumption
  9. Maximized animal welfare, product quality and food safety
  10. Optimal utilization of raw materials by digital value chain integration

Take a deeper dive into the goals here.

Danish Technological Institute has developed the 10 goals in cooperation with the Danish pork industry, which is one of the largest pork exporters in the world and is widely acknowledged for its high production quality.

“The Danish pork industry is facing the same challenges as slaughterhouses and pork processors in Brazil, the USA or any other market and therefore, the goals are relevant to the industry globally. Today, we do not have all the solutions to meet every goal but by keeping them as lighthouses in the innovation process, we will find new solutions to benefit the industry and the consumers”, says Benny Sandersen, Business Development Director, Danish Technological Institute.
