With poultry a key focus for many at IPPE, Dutch specialist Foodmate were in Atlanta to show off its dark meat deboning system the Opti LTD, which offers an optional automated J Cutting station. David Hazenbroek, president of Foodmate, said the system offered a range of benefits, from lower labour costs, through to improved high quality yield and was capable of deboning 100 legs, thighs or drumsticks a minute. He said the market for dark meat was growing fast, and the machine was attracting strong attention within the US sector, as well as recently gaining approval for operation within the Japanese market as well.
