OUR PROCESSING PLANT
Chicken processing can never be better than what we do in our world class processing equipment. Every process is monitored by a quality assurance personnel and all necessary tests are conducted including water test. Hygiene is the second name given to our processing operations as any form of contamination will greatly affect product quality and operations. Certain terms/operations must be used or performed in chicken processing operations and they are:
The importance and use of water cannot be over emphasised. Water must be tested/clean and the hot water must be kept at the required temperature.This is very important to avoid skin peeling during scalding. During scalding, feathers are removed through a process called abrasion. After scalding while the chickens are still hanging on the line, the chicken goes through a process called evisceration where the intestines are removed, the head and feet are cut off and the chicken are properly washed.
Processed chicken are not allowed to stay on the packaging table for more than 20 minutes before going to the Blast freezer then to the chiller for proper preservation.
