International Conference on Poultry Processing

 
 
 

Introduction     

Pakistan is 11th largest poultry meat producer in the world and poultry meat is contributing 35-40% in total meat consumption of the nation. Owing to lack of proper processing and wet market dependency, this industry has to face swift price fluctuations. To cater with the consumer needs of persistent, safe, ready to cook and ready to cook and ready to eat products. Poultry meat processing needs to be encouraged. As the processing and value addition not only overcome the price fluctuation, but may also enhance the poultry meat consumption. Although, processing and value addition phenomena are essential for prosperity of Poultry industry, yet sufficient information is to be dispensed; Halal slaughtering, food safety measures, feed withdrawal practices, medicine’s residuals, live weight shrinkages, use of salt and other additives etc. This conference will focus on capacity enhancement of academia / industry personnel to equip with the latest knowledge of poultry processing.

Why this conference is important?

The meat in wet market is exposed to several kinds of microbial contamination, due to poor hygienic conditions in a butcher shop. The broiler market is shifting from unhygienic butcher’s shops toward commercially produced processed meat and ready to cook products. It is therefore a dire need to educate industrial stakeholders, to acquaint them of quality attributes and factor that can affect meat quality, consumer health and acceptability. Moreover, the industry will get more benefits when the local farmer rear birds keeping in view the needs of processing plant. These farmers also need education to produce birds with latest developed techniques to enhance carcass yield and quality. Effective farm to fork management in this regard will be very helpful in satisfying industry as well as consumer needs. The subject of chicken processing is one of the weakest links in Pakistan. There is lack of proper institutes and trained manpower in this particular subject. Likewise, the equipment needed for estimating meat quality is also absent in most of the institutes and researches most of the times focus on carcass yield and physical quality instead of working on quality and physiochemical properties. Industry also lacks trained manpower and technical experts to deal with meat having lower qualities in terms of physiochemical properties. Keeping in view, the recent growth of broiler industry the scientists are working to develop latest techniques and optimize several processes according to environment of Pakistan. Therefore, a conference on this subject will be very helpful in disseminating the knowledge of poultry processing from scientist to emerging industrialists.
