Challenge 1: The market demands more and more thin portions
There are good reasons to invest in a portion cutting solution that’s able to meet with increasing demand for thinner and thinner portions. Thin portions are the base for trendy meals in many countries, such as French paillard in France, Japanese shabu-shabu, Italian saltimbocca, piccata Milanese and involtini, Austrian Wiener and Figlmüller Schnitzel, and German Rinderroulade.
As the global population grows, we are also seeing that we don't have enough livestock for so many people. As feeding the world in the future will be a challenge, reducing food waste becomes more and more important. We need to make better use of what we have, and smaller portions have the advantage of reducing waste on the consumer’s end.
- Thin portion cutting can be one of the solutions to meet this trend. But to get a good cutting result with precise weights and portion shapes, crust-freezing is often necessary. Doing away with the need for crust-freezing can save you substantial running cost.
