As the world’s population continues to grow, so does the need for more efficient use of resources and new methods to optimise how we utilise animal protein. One way of doing this is by increasing the consumable part of products when preparing and packaging fish, poultry and meat products. As a leading global provider of food processing systems, Marel has set out to do just that. “According to calculations we will be needing around 50 per cent more food in 2050 than now. And as developing countries increase their living standards, one of the first signs is the need for more animal protein. The challenge is that we don’t have more land to produce the extra meat,” explains Ladefoged.
