Our Meat Cutting and Processing for Food Service (From Farm to Store)
Ever wondered how pork how your favourite ham is prepared from farm to store?
As mentioned in a previous article, pork is fabricated into two different pork meat cuts. Meat cutting, or fabrication, is the process of cutting, boning, and portioning large cuts of meat to primal and sub primal specifications.
Pork is delivered from the farms from where we source our products; these may be whole, in sides, or broken down into pieces (professionally known as ‘primals’.) The primals which include the pork shoulder, pork leg, pork loin, and pork belly are broken down into sub-primals. See the example below of the primal and sub-primal pork cuts that you can purchase in the supermarket.
