In brief: Other highlights Technology provider GEA Food Solutions has developed an advanced injection technique that contributes to high brine retention and low standard deviation of bacon – crucial to ensuring consistency of distribution, quality and yields. GEA’s Multijector, an automated injection system, introduces brine in a high-density injection pattern, combined with low injection pressure, avoiding injection points becoming saturated, which can cause the brine to leak out. A higher density of needles allows less brine per needle to be injected at a lower pressure. Benefits for bacon producers using a high-density injection pattern include improved slicing yield, reduced post-injection purge and drip loss, optimum moisture and salt levels while avoiding injecting air or foam, ultimately extending the shelf life of bacon by several weeks. Reduced purge not only impacts yields but also means reduced downtime spent cleaning the equipment and surrounding environment. Campden BRI Hungary, EIT Digital, the National Research Council of Italy and ELTE Faculty of Informatics are to bring the industry up to date with digital transformation. A new industry 4.0 course has been launched to help the food sector modernize processing. The three-day online course will cover the limitations and new possibilities of digitalization to help food businesses understand how they can implement Industry 4.0 and update their systems.
