Primary processing at Agroprodmash

31.07.2017 Section: Articles & Interviews

Gradual implementation of the national priority project on agriculture development and other government regulations contributed to a considerable growth in domestic production thus resulting in achieving 90% of self-provision with pork and 95% with poultry.

In 2016, pork production amounted to 3,390 thousand tonnes of carcass weight that was 10% more than in 2015 and turned out to be the highest for the last 10 years. Moreover, the commercial production of pork amounts to around 82%. According to estimates, implementation of initiated projects in commercial pig farming will deliver further boost by 21% in the industrial sector up to 3,326 thousand tonnes and by 14% in the total production – up to 3,865 thousand tonnes.

In 2016 poultry production amounted to 4,760 thousand tonnes, egg production totaled 44 billion. Today, Russia ranks the fourth in the world with 3.7% of the world poultry production following the USA, China and Brazil. It ranks the fifth in the world rating of egg producers.

Demand for Pouches Used in Meat Packaging to Grow 5.3% Annually

03.03.2017 Section: Articles & Interviews

Demand for pouches used in meat packaging is forecast to climb 5.3% per year to $220 million in 2021, with unit gains expected to advance 3% per year to 1.6 billion units. Above average gains will be driven by the growing preference for products that make meal preparation more convenient. These and other trends are presented in Meat Packaging Market in the US, a new study from The Freedonia Group, a Cleveland-based industry research firm.

Stand-up pouches are well-positioned for growth in the frozen meat and jerky sectors while retort pouches will continue to see more use in the packaging of processed meat. However, many conversions have already occurred, mitigating gains somewhat going forward.

According to analyst Katie Wieser, “Pouches have a number of advantages and disadvantages that impact their position in meat packaging.” For processed meats, the ability to be easily displayed is a key benefit, resulting in greater use of stand-up and peggable formats and high-quality printing. Additionally, the ability to integrate value-added features has allowed pouches to gain share in all major markets for meat packaging.

However, cost and slower production speeds will limit gains for many processed meat applications. Furthermore, the packaging of ready-to-eat meat products in pouches is not feasible in many cases due to the fact that these often must remain upright in their packages.

Agroprodmash brings together leading manufacturers of equipment for the fish industry

30.08.2016 Section: News of branch

The Rybpromresurs participants at Agroprodmash share information about their products and trends of equipment for the fish processing industry.

“Today new equipment is acquired mainly by large businesses. The largest part of it is used at newly constructed shore-based factories for processing salmonid fishes and nelma. For the most part we are talking about the Kamchatka and Khabarovsk regions; to a lesser degree it happens in the Sakhalin region,” says Artyom Komarov, the head of the advertising and marketing department of the Technological Equipment company. At Agroprodmash 2016 the company will showcase equipment for fish and roe processing. It will especially be interesting to enterprises engaged in deep processing. One of the exhibits is the latest roe separator which is capable to extract salmon, cod and pollock roe without changing components and assemblies. It ensures that extraction of salmon roe from defrosted skein is 10–20% higher than when using Japanese counterparts.

General Director of Haarslev Industries OOO Eduard Lobyan says that the main reason why Russian manufacturers cannot reach the level of production of western countries is outdated equipment. The company’s focus is design and manufacture of equipment, and setup of units for processing of livestock and fish waste. About 20% of Haarslev Industries’s products connected with processing of fish byproducts. “There is a shortage of fish flour. According to the official figures, the annual demand for fish flour, mainly for poultry and pig farming, is 420 thousand tons, but only 80 thousand tons are produced,” says Eduard Lobyan.
