Modern meat processors are increasingly using Least Cost Formulation (LCF) to optimize their production. LCF is a mathematical optimization technique that enables meat processors to put together a formula or recipe at the least cost or expense. It specifically applies when a formula or recipe must meet certain technical parameters and constraints, and where there is flexibility in ingredient use in meeting those parameters. When using LCF, meat processors must consider several factors, including variability in the composition of raw materials, availability of raw materials, cost of raw materials, and the demand on production.
The safety of consumers is of paramount importance to both manufacturers and retailers in the food and beverage sector. Not only is there a responsibility to protect those who purchase goods, there is also a fundamental need to protect the brands that encourage those consumers to the stores, and indeed the stores themselves. A number of high profile product recalls have made the international press in recent years, which has highlighted not only the costs involved with such an event in terms of recalling the product in question, but also the crippling damage that can be caused to the reputations of both producer and seller. For this reason, more and more major retailers are demanding their suppliers use x-ray systems for food inspection at critical control points (CCPs) as part of their HACCP programs.
Black beans are harvested directly from the ground. Many manufacturers rely on visual inspection, sieves or gravity separators to remove contaminants, mainly stones, from the bulk beans.
