Friboi to invest in automated raw material classification technology

Related tags: Jbs, Brazil, Beef

JBS’ Friboi division is to introduce new classification technology at its Campoi Grande facility.

It plans to invest R$600,000 to test the classification technology.

Through the system, to be implemented in March of this year, images are captured by digital cameras and the meat fat finishing data is analyzed in real time.

With this technology, it is possible to carry out the automated classification of the raw material in this criterion, which is one of the items evaluated in the awarding of the company's suppliers.

The technology has previously been adopted by the National Meat Institute (Inac) in Uruguay and the French government. The classification technology comes from Normaclass, a French company acquired last year by Scott Technology, a New Zealand company controlled by JBS. The resources for implementing this innovation are part of the R$8bn that JBS plans to invest in Brazil over the next five years.
