OBJECTIVE

To work with Pilgrim’s management and plant personnel to convert a big bird operation to a case ready product mix. Foodmate was charged with providing a flexible, high yield, simple system for cut-up and dark meat deboning.

FOODMATE SOLUTION AND END RESULTS

The Foodmate team worked closely with plant’s engineering and management to be certain of their expectations of flow. Once this was established, Pilgrim’s and Foodmate planned to utilize the Foodmate Inspirience Center – in Ball Ground, GA – for training of plant maintenance and management personnel, through the Foodmate Academy training program.

Foodmate and Pilgrim’s teams collaborated on assessing systems and installation requirements. Client’s expectations were met and the project was a very successful project.

One of my favorite features of the Foodmate OPTI Flow Cut-up system is its flexibility and simplicity… I felt very comfortable with the Foodmate Team prior, during, and after project completion. This was a challenging project, but I absolutely feel our goals have been met.” -Don Burrows, VP of Case Ready Operations, Pilgrim’s Sanford.
