Today's meat consumers base their purchase decisions on a range of preferences and expectations. Processors must deliver on, and account for, a broad spectrum of factors and attributes, including flavor, texture, color stability, moisture content, nutritional content, cook yield, sliceability, water activity, pH, and, of course, food safety. Balancing all of these considerations in processing requires specialized knowledge and experience, and oftentimes, teamwork.
For more than 85 years, Corbion has applied its expertise in preserving meat, poultry, seafood, and, more recently, alternative meat applications. Over decades of research, innovation, and the practical application of ingredient technologies, the company has built a uniquely broad and versatile portfolio of solutions.
That work has earned Corbion its reputation as an industry leader in spoilage inhibition and pathogen control. For more than 20 years, the Corbion Listeria Control Model has set the standard for predictive modeling tools that enable our partners to quickly and accurately identify the optimal preservation solution to slow microbial growth and extend freshness in meat applications. And whether your target customers are looking for products made from label-friendly ingredients or they're happy with a more traditional approach, Corbion freshness and food safety solutions help ensure that your products deliver the taste, texture, and overall eating experience all consumers want.
