Meat Processing Systems
Consumer demand for locally-grown specialty meat products is exploding. However, the meat industry continues to consolidate under the weight of big producers. The alarming decrease in USDA and state-inspected slaughterhouses is forcing small meat producers to be beholden to the behemoths. At Friesla, we’re providing farmers and ranchers an alternative: Meat Processing Systems that enable your complete control over onsite meat processing — from slaughter to sale.
Whether you’re processing beef, bison, deer, goat, pork, or sheep, harvesting your animals onsite helps to ensure meat quality, lower transportation costs, and reduce your dependence on large regional packing plants.
Friesla’s Meat Processing Systems are interlocking modules that enable you to knock and bleed, harvest, chill, cut and wrap, freeze, store, and even sell meat onsite. The systems are USDA compliant and fully integrated with your HACCP plan.
Compared to building a brick and mortar facility, our Meat Processing Systems cost up to 75% less and can be relocated, rearranged, or added onto as your operations grow. The systems are more cost effective to operate than fixed facilities, requiring significantly less power, water, and other resources.
Unlike brick and mortar facilities, Friesla’s Meat Processing Systems are depreciable over 7 years and don’t require building permits or long approval periods. They are delivered with hardware and software to support product traceability and digital workflows. Training on system use is optional and provided by our regulatory, harvest, and processing teams.
