MACHINERY FOR THE MEAT INDUSTRY

MACHINERY FOR THE MEAT INDUSTRY

Past and present filling machines.

One of the greatest revolutions without a doubt was the industrial revolution. In the 18th century Great Britain became the stage for its beginnings, expanding later to whole Europe till the mid-19th century and remaining a key point for progress, establishing a before and after in production techniques. Machines contributed to mass production reducing times. All sectors were influenced by it and it contributed to a sustained economic growth for all social classes.

Today, we cannot imagine working without machines and looking towards the future, one without robots doesn’t seem likely either.

In the meat industry, we have to think further ahead than just the slaughtering. Pigs, for example, were sacrificed in a barbaric way that provoked anguishing high-pitched squeals, and the process was done manually with all the sanitary surprises it might entail. Machines introduced not only a rise in production but also higher security and hygiene.

The automation process gave free rein to endless research in all sectors in order to invent new machines with different functionalities.

Nowadays, the production of charcuterie is carried out by state-of-the-art filling machinery that take into consideration hygiene, ergonomics, safety, displacement, among other aspects that make a difference.

The industrial revolution is far in our past but now we live smaller revolutions at the present that contribute to a periodic progress. For example, later came quality and safety norms that have contribute to improve the industrial world and to walk towards excellence.

Talsa is a producer of machinery for the meat industry with fillers, mixers, mincers, cutters and stuffer of middle-range capacity that has become a world leader in the food industry.

Given so many advances is no wonder that we now have a higher life expectancy.

Making of machinery for the meat industry

In order to show excellency it is necessary to be competent, that is, having competence.

The adopted philosophy, its history, trajectory and commitment to quality values is what keeps a company on a visible spot and with expectations of expansion and renowned prestige.

Expansion is like an oil stain that spreads the good but also the bad. If a bad practice can lead to ruin, a good management together with good products can also expand potentially. Always starting small and then advancing, the echo of creative, innovative and leading companies rests on a solid base built on years of hard work and experience.

The development of a sales strategy is not a matter of days and it is reinforced by establishing strengths where there were once weaknesses.

Talsa is a European company and example of international leadership in the making of machinery for the meat industry, its leading product being the medium capacity mixer. Its catalog offers filler/stuffers, mincers/grinders, cutters/choppers and cookers/kettles only to distributors that endorse the company’s brand during the sales process and maintenance by additionally offering a permanent technical assistance service.

The American market could not resist and corroborates Talsa’s leadership in the international market. Talsa has been producing and exporting its machinery mostly slowly, with the soundness gained from 100 years industrial experience. Exporting requires meeting very strict quality control checks, and so, Talsa trusts all verification agencies and advice on quality control by the European Community.

And so, it consolidates in the market as a company that sells machinery that will not need almost any spare parts in the future.

All of these reasons make of Talsa a very competent company, with a well-defined course of action that differentiates it from the competition.

Talsa - IFFA 2016

Talsa at IFFA 2016.

Once more, Talsa, a leading European, medium-capacity machinery manufacturer for the meat industry, has participated from May 7th to May 12th in Frankfurt at the IFFA 2016, the number one fair for the meat industry.

This year, the IFFA 2016 had near 1,000 exhibits from 47 countries, with a surface area of more than 100,000m2 and received more than 70,000 visitors.

The IFFA is the first specialized International Fair for the meat industry sector and represents the most important innovation platform for this sector.

Talsa, once again, has had an important and favourable reception among visitors and professionals from this sector, due to its wide range of machinery for the meat and the meat products industry.

Below, we show the photo gallery of the Talsa stand at the IFFA 2016 Fair.

Talsa’s team is already getting ready for IFFA’s next edition in 2019.

Meat through time | Talsa

IFFA | Talsa

Since man was a nomad and a hunter, he has eaten meat to feed himself. In the prehistory, they sliced the meat in strips which were dried in the sun. When fire was discovered, new meat preservation alternatives were developed, because then meat could be smoked or cooked.  With sedentism, livestock farming and agriculture were born, spices and salt were discovered and feeding had a turning point. We know that sausages existed in classical Greece, because literary works describe sausages as Aristófanes does in one of his comedies. Homero, for instance, in his Odyssey, talks about animal intestines stuffed with blood and grease, which could be roasted over the fire, and this is, without any doubt, an antique testimony of sausage eating. For romans, “the botullus”, a sort of blood sausage of the time, was available and could be purchased in their food markets.

In the XV century, livestock farming was carried out outside the city, where animals were slaughtered and were sliced into pieces to be sold.  And pork farms were developed to create ham and sausage factories.

Animal consumption is so important for our diet, that at the end of the XVIII century and during the XIX century, during the industrial revolution, a giant step was taken in the meat industry, when more and newer products were made using the newly developed machines. Cooking, smoking and spices were used again to prepare sausages and cold meats.

With sausages, also cold meats were born, which are prepared for consumption.

Today, due to industrialization, all types of specific machines for the food industry have been developed and the manufacturers have specialized in different production areas.

Talsa, is a european machinery manufacturer for the meat industry, with a medium capacity range of machinery.

Talsa has successfully become a world reference in the manufacture of:

The meat industry is currently more convenient, secure and simple, and at the same time more complex, taking into account the multiple stations that meat has to go through to arrive at our table.

Talsa be present

Talsa, a machinery manufacturer for the meat industry, is endorsed by more than 100 years of industrial experience.

Shortly, from May 7th to May 12th Talsa will participate at the IFFA Frankfurt Fair, stand 8.0 C55.

Talsa doesn’t sell directly to large or medium-sized companies, but it sells its machinery through its distributors and in fairs such as this. Talsa exhibits its innovations and also builds relationships with people and companies interested in distributing its machinery. For this reason, Talsa is always present in the best international business fairs.

IFFA is one of the most internationally relevant innovative platforms with “meat” as its subject. In the past 50 years, German and internationally recognized manufactures meet in this Fair to exhibit to the professional community the new trends in this industry, offering solutions for all stages of the value chain in the meat industry. From the slaughtering stage to the transformation, treatment, packing and sales stages.

Globalization has imposed some requirements to the whole value chain, emphasizing the importance of hygienic processing and setting strict controls to ensure food safety. The IFFA is, therefore, the exhibition site for the “modern meat industry”. Taking part in this Fair is then very important in order to be in touch with international clients and consequently to open more doors and opportunities for export.

In its previous edition, the Fair surface was 120.000 m2 with approximately 1000 exhibitors and some 60.000 visitors.

Talsa will exhibit its wide range of machinery for the meat processing industry:

Medium capacity machinery for the sausage industry, which has earned a quality and excellence seal and worldwide leadership recognition. Talsa also makes a commitment to deliver in time and makes immediate dispatches through recognized transportation means. It uses the TNT Express Courier to ship parts anywhere in the world and gives support to its distributors 365 days of the year.

We will insist again in all this in the IFFA 2016.

Leading in the manufacture of machinery for the meat

leading in the manufacture of machinery for the meatTalsa

Leading company in the manufacture and export of machinery for the meat and meat processing industry.

The TALSA brand has established itself successfully in the meat processing industry machinery manufacturing market thanks to its very good business judgement, a very good thorough management and especially due to its general vision.

Due to its product quality, rules were necessary to place orders, to provide service, maintenance and technical services, in order to ensure an orderly management. Clients must address distributors directly to solve emergency situations such as parts replacement or equipment maintenance. Talsa also has authorized and qualified installers.

Furthermore, Talsa recommends contacting the distributor who sold the machinery instead of contacting some other distributor, for the same reasons mentioned above. The distributor who sold the machinery has the registration number, the machine’s identification and components. This is the reason why Talsa does not offer direct sales services.

Talsa only relies in gas installers and local smoke evacuation services for the cooking kettles, because it must comply with local standards, technical reports and periodical inspections.

In its website, Talsa has a special section for its distributors. From this page, one can download catalogues, technical specifications, TAS requests and specific forms. This allows working in an orderly fashion, with the resulting benefit of immediacy and a better overall management.

From there, you may apply to become a Talsa distributor if you own a meat processing machinery marketing company.

Talsa asserts that its machinery does not need spare parts and this is confirmed by the fact that the majority of orders are non-urgent spare part orders. Still, if the order is placed before 5 pm, the spare parts are sent the same day, by courier service (TNT Express Courier), all the working days of the year. Talsa has a very good responsiveness and delivery capability, due to its permanent stock of thousands of general spare parts.
