Adding BoneGuard to your packaging procedure will both increase the quality and presentation of your finished product all whilst saving costs and decreasing leakers and spoilage.
1. Decrease Packaging Costs: BoneGuard enable processors to dramaticaly decrease packaging costs. Extra bone protection means processers can use thinner, lighter bags without worrying about punctures and leakage.
2. Increase Presentation: The ability to use a lower micron bag increases the shrinkage percentage and allows for greater drip and blood loss control, enhancing presentation on the finished product.
3. Eliminate Mould: Our bone protection range reduces mould growth and darkening of the bone marrow meaning the finished product keeps the same freshness as the day it was packed.
Take your product and convert into desired cut. In this case – a leg of lamb.
Apply a sheet of waxed BoneGuard around the protruding bone. Ensure it is fully covered. This is simple as the BoneGuard will hold it’s shape so no adjustment will need to be made before packing.
Place another sheet of BoneGuard over any other bones in the particular cut you are working with. In this case there is a H-bone towards the thigh which is covered as you can see in the picture on the left.
Continue the packing process as normal, in this scenario, the product is first vacuum packed and then bathed in hot water to induce further shrinking.
The finished product. Due to the added bone protection, the lighter bag increases shrink and enhances the appearance and quality of the end product.
Although one of the most popular meats for consumers across the world, beef brings its own set of problems for those in the processing industry. Cattle bones are notoriously strong making packaging difficult and causing waste with both leakers and punctures during transport. Applying BoneGuard to cuts of beef before packing can help reduce these problems and in turn reduce costs.
Apply a sheet of waxed BoneGuard around the cut, ensuring all bones are covered. Continue to pack as normal and let the BoneGuard protect the bag from punctures as seen here to the left.
