The outlook for the global poultry sector for 2014 is bullish, and this outlook is being fueled by sharply lower feed costs and tight global supplies of pork and beef, Rabobank reports. In its report titled Crossroads for Growth: The International Poultry Sector Towards 2020, Rabobank states the global poultry industry is currently valued at approximately $300 billion wholesale and more than $400 billion at retail. This represents approximately 5 percent of the world food market value. With 34 percent of the work production volume, poultry is now the second-largest meat market after pork.
Globally, sausage remains contemporary and a mega-market. Sausage, whether it is in the form of chub cold cuts for breakfast and lunch enjoyed in Germany and other European countries, cooked breakfast sausage, cooked dinner sausage or sausage snacks, continues to be a mainstay in all day parts, in between meals, as well as primary or secondary ingredients in breakfast, lunch and dinner dishes. Meanwhile in the United States, sausage sales remain brisk. Dollar sales for refrigerated breakfast sausage ham for the 52 weeks ending Dec. 1, 2013 totaled $1,482,663,000, up 5.39 percent from the same year-earlier period, and refrigerated dinner sausage sales were $2,993,417,000, up 1.90 percent from the same year-earlier period, Information Resources, Inc. relays.

One of many standouts in the Weiler grinder line is its new VersaGrind 11 Pump Grinding System. This new system increases productivity and enhances product quality for processors of sausage and other meat and poultry products.
Features and technologies of the VersaGrind Pump Grinding System include:
• AccuPump Technology – A positive displacement pump eliminates roll back and overworking of raw materials for a higher quality end product, reduced maintenance and cost of ownership, and repeatable and consistent particle definition.
• Speed Control – Variable speed control on three separate drives “dial in” to exact particle definition required.
• Dominator® Technology – Provides superior hard-tissue removal, enhanced product quality, and superior definition and uniformity.
Meanwhile, system benefits include dramatic increase in grind rate, significant reduction in batching cycle times, improved product appearance and coloration, elimination of product smearing, and surpassed product standards. The VersaGrind system can be used on sausage and other meat and poultry products from the lowest to highest quality of raw materials, and it delivers all of these benefits at a lower cost of ownership.
