1 1 Pi-Vac Elaste System ® Process description The following information was provided by the Pi-Vac Elasto Pack ® manufacturer and one company which implemented this process. ADIV - 2009

2 2 Pi-Vac Elasto Pack ® The Pi-Vac Elasto Pack ® system consists in packaging pre-rigor muscles in highly elastic film tubes. Each film tube is stretched to enable the introduction of a meat piece. Once the meat is inside, the film is released and returns to its original dimensions. As a result the tubes exert strong forces on muscles, hindering radial expansion caused by muscle fibre contraction during rigor mortis development. This system improves meat aspect and tenderness and reduces packaging costs. ADIV - 2009

4 4 The process (1) Step 1 - Machine in start position ADIV - 2009

5 5 The process (2) Step 2 - Plastic film tube preparation : The film is placed on the hooks. ADIV - 2009

6 6 The process (3) Step 3 - Packaging chamber depressurization to dilate the plastic film tube: The hooks stretch the film and the air inside the machine is removed. ADIV - 2009

7 7 The process (4) Step 4 - Meat piece introduction into the packaging chamber: The meat piece can easily be introduced in the film. ADIV - 2009

8 8 The process (5) Step 5 - Pressure release inside the packaging chamber: The pressure around the film is released so that it contracts itself around the meat piece. ADIV - 2009

9 9 The process (6) Step 6 - Extraction of the meat piece ADIV - 2009

10 10 The process (7) Step 7 - Plastic film tube removal: The plastic film tube is easily cut using the pre-cut end. ADIV - 2009

14 14 Benefits 1.Place saving and costs reducing: no cooling room and dip tank required 2.Energy saving: no need to cool carcasses before boning 3.Time saving: muscles are cooled, not whole carcasses 4.Environmentally friendly: less packaging materials 5.Water retaining: reduction of drip loss 6.Tenderness, aspect and texture improving: reduction of “cold shortening”, better shape, more juice 7.Flavour improving: smell and taste ADIV - 2009

15 15 Conditions 1.Constraining: Only implementable in plants where slaughtering and boning are possible 2.Adaptation required: the plant’s logistic must be adapted to the hot boning process 3.BSE: Only for young beefs that don’t require BSE test 4.More workforce: no automatization of the packaging process ADIV - 2009

16 16 Figures: Packaging materials Indicative prices – 2007 The Pi-Vac Elasto system is 25 % cheaper than the use of shrinking bags. The costs saving are not based on cheap packaging materials but on the consumption of less material for each package! Shrinking bags Pi-Vac Elasto Pack® Price for 1 m 2 without quatity discount 1.43€2.70€ Price for 1 m 2 with quatity discount 0.99€1.86€ Price per Kg packed meat 0.10€0.075€ ADIV - 2009
