Before we talk more about this complete suite and its solutions, let’s give a quick look at the meat processing industry of Canada and what is the current process that meat processing companies follow.

  • Client From North America
  • Solution We Developed Meat Processing and Packaging Suite to Automate the Whole Process
  • Year 2017 – 2018

Meat Processing Industry of Canada

  • In Canada, the third largest manufacturing industry is food processing, and when measured by shipments and value added, the largest food processing sector is meat processing.
  • Being a leading part of the food industry in exports of Canada, meat processing accounted for 1/3 of the total food exports. Moreover, it is the largest food and beverage subsector in terms of employment.
  • Comprised of production and processing, packaging, and preserving, the meat industry is known for importing all types of meat, including beef and veal, lamb and mutton, pork, chicken, goat, rabbit, horse, and wild game like venison and bison.
  • Looking at the annual revenue generated from the meat manufacturing industry, it generated over 28 billion Canadian dollars whereas the average household expenditure on meat was recorded to be a little over a thousand Canadian dollars.
  • The Canadian meat processing industry was valued at around 6.52 billion Canadian dollars with luncheon meat recording a sales volume of approximately 240 million units, according to statista.com.
  • With a $100 million increase in exports, Canada’s meat processing industry results in an almost equivalent increase in GDP of $97 million.

Moving ahead, let’s talk about our client’s meat processing and packing company was handling the entire process from meat production & processing, packaging to preserving:

Across Canada, there are thousands of meat processing companies and startups that are managing meat manufacturing, processing, and packing operation manually. Whether it is about warehouse and freezer management, multiple units of measure, or traceability, the companies are manually following the entire process.
When it comes to record customers’ data and requirements, our client’s meat processing company used to maintain paper-based forms and manually enter the data in the excel sheet. In the excel sheet, the company created different sections, including animal processing data, customers’ data, packing data and shipments and prefer to update this sheet on regular basis.

Different problems meat processing companies are facing

  • The employees of the company, including inspectors to trained butchers, meat cutters, and packers were manually filling information about the orders in the excel sheet.
  • Admins used to maintain paper-based forms for customer’s data, orders, and specific requirements like custom or fabrication, bag & box label, logotype and additional description.
  • Once employees were generating paper-based reports and forms of customer’s requirements, then they were manually filling this data and information in the excel sheet that takes huge time of employees.
  • Many a time, excel sheet created confusion among employees and the team spent maximum time and effort in maintaining these sheets.
  • In short, this entire process that meat processing company was following was not reliable, and there was no strong evidence like customers’ requirements that they describe while placing an order.
  • In fact, the company doesn’t have any system or solution to track all the orders, labelling and their status at one single platform. It manually tracks all the orders and their status to update the admin.
  • Even, there was a lot of communication gap among different departments of the company like animal production & processing department, packaging department, and preservation department.
