Processing

Food quality, safety and integrity are vital to all points along the red meat supply chain, so at Makani we employ the latest technologies and processes to ensure the highest standards of hygiene and meat safety.

We process over 800 head a day, 6 days a week and strive for quality and consistency at every step along the process. We process between 650 to 700 veal and yearling cattle each day, 5 days a week.

We work hard to be among the industry leaders in processing and packaging to satisfy the requirements of both the domestic and international markets.

 

Welfare & Hygiene Standards

Makani has aligned our processing facilities with processing principals designed by Temple Grandin to eliminate distress and ensure the highest standard of animal welfare.

We ensure minimal stress to animals by careful handling and management and we have earned consumer confidence by our strict adherence to industry best practice including:

- Handling our livestock in the most humane possible;

- Designing our plants to ensure calm animals are processed humanely;

- Unloading cattle calmly;

- Minimising slips and falls through non-slip flooring;

- Resting our animals in the holding pens for several hours to calm and settle them;

- Avoiding overcrowding the pens so cattle can move around;

- Forbidding the use of cattle prods;

- Moving the cattle to the processing area in small groups; and

- Shielding the cattle from workers and machinery by high solid walls along their pathway.
