Optimal use of by-products. Real case stories developed by the DMRI with potential benefit.

By-products are an important part of the animal. When you buy a pig, you pay for the whole animal.

The meat industry pays about 2 euros per kg, including all parts of the carcass – which could also get the most out of the 5th quarter!

A channel consists of about 185 parts:

Are you targeting the right market?

Could the parts be upgraded to a higher category?

Are you getting the best yields and quality?

You could say your 5th quarter is processed by an outside company – but supplying higher volumes of better quality and higher value should provide a profit.
