Within the meat industry, great efficiencies, and thus added value, can be achieved by optimally overviewing, monitoring and connecting the entire chain, from hog to hot dog. This chain consists of farmers, slaughterhouses, residual meat producers and processors producing final products. While each party involved tends to have a good overview mainly of their own part of the production process, a food technological approach adds value by overviewing as well as monitoring the entire chain for optimal economic and societal utility. It does so, among others, by connecting supply and demand within the chain, allowing for optimal carcass valorisation 2.0 to take place.
