The brochure attached shows the cabinet range however the technology can be installed in rooms for larger volume operations. We are confident these units offer, gaming changing technologies, over what is currently available in the Australian market. These ranges offer processes which are simple to operate but advanced enough to digitally record the complete ‘life cycle’ of the protein while it is being aged or fermented, assuring the safety of the product and the commercial viability through maximised yield. Arredo Inox has developed products which balance the needs of food safety and the
commercial realities simplicity and high yield. Stories about profit here.
Salt & Meat
Salt is hygroscopic and can remove moisture from the air. Salt blocks are not necessary in a facility that has refrigeration units capable of maintaining the
required relative humidity. How will you know the Relative Humidity that suits your operation (CSIRO recommend a range of 75-85%) to age meat?
Maturmeat from Arredo controls the Relative Humidity and monitors on a daily basis. It is possible that salt blocks may reduce relative humidity, but their use seems to be primarily for marketing purposes and it should be understood that they, deteriorate over time and will need to be replaced.
