The Prime Equipment Group says it looks to Europe when it comes to what trends within the poultry sector might be heading over to the US. The company was at the International Production and Processing Expo to showcase some of its latest developments, including a new 24 inch automated turkey skinner, and in prime place its new ILBD-1 chicken breast deboner, which Grant Parsons, marketing manager, said was capable of providing automated yield on a par with hand deboning, while providing a major labour saving to processors. “There’s nothing like this on the market,” Parsons claimed. The company has also launched a new app, which allows customers to learn about the business, check information, and technical specifications of equipment. Parsons said the app would allow technical staff to check details of machines wherever they were.
