    How Can Fat Analysis Systems Improve Cost Efficiency In The Meat Industry?

    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.
