movement and transportation, not to mention
innovations such as industrial refrigeration,
the assembly line and vacuum packaging. Tales
of the pioneers of these technologies can be
found in the storied histories of the industry's
equipment leaders, many of whom are still
involved in the meat industry today.
FIRST MACHINES, THEN PROCESSES
Meat packing plants began appearing in
the United States in the early 1800s, mostly
on the East Coast. But by the mid-1800s
growth moved to the Midwest as the Chicago
Stockyards became the biggest US livestock
market and meat packing plants emerged in
other Midwestern cities. As more consumers
started demanding meat, meat packers looked
to expand and mechanize their operations.
Little by little, meat processing equipment
started becoming available, making the
business of breaking down carcasses and
processing the meat more profitable.
The early meat processing equipment
pioneers made it possible for meat packers
to streamline their operations, increasing
production amounts and production speed.
" Many of the early equipment
manufacturers worked with the intention of
improving not just processes, not just trying
to make more money, but they were trying
to make things better for people, " said Brent
Meyer, owner of Brent Meyer Communication.
" They were asking themselves: 'How do we get
food to other places? How can we transport
food better? How can we make things safer?'
A huge part of the industry that many people
don't think about, is the idea that they were
working to make a system, a process or a
product better. "
Historians credit the last couple of decades
of the 1800s and first few decades of the 1900s
with a number of the primary inventions used
in today's meat processing environments.
In the 1880s, mechanical mixers, stuffers
and choppers were developed. By the early
1900s, cure pumps, slicing machines and
conveyorized tables were invented. And by the
1920s, band saws and meat grinders made meat
processing faster and easier.
The father of the modern meat grinder was
said to be Karl Friedrich Christian Ludwig
Freiherr Drais von Sauerbron from Germany.
He invented the manual meat grinder in the
mid-1800s. He also invented the typewriter,
a stenograph machine and a " wooden
running machine " that later evolved into the
modern bicycle.
Two women are credited with helping
to shape the way meat is cut in processing
environments today. First, in 1813, an
American Shaker in Massachusetts named
Sarah " Tabitha " Babbit invented the circular
saw. Bandsaws were later invented and in
1846, Anne Pauline Crepin from France
invented a way to weld the ends of the bands
securely together, allowing band saws to
successfully function.
" Thousands of technological developments,
innovations in engineering designs
and incremental improvements in food
manufacturing equipment and technology have
been put into place since the early 1900s, " said
David Seckman, president and chief executive
officer of the Food Processing Suppliers
Association, which represents the suppliers to
the food processing and packaging industry.
" Today's food processing and packaging is
radically different than that of 100 years ago. "
Cozzini Bros. started out as a one-man knife
sharpening business on the streets of Chicago
and evolved into a 4th generation family blade
business (now called PRIMEdge). After years of
simply sharpening blades for butcher shops and
restaurants, Cozzini Bros. took the next step
into the processing world, sharpening bowl
choppers, grinding plates and slicing blades.
Their quest for more efficiency and consistency,
led them to create shelf-sharpening blades for
continuous production bowl choppers using
pumps and pressure. One thing led to another,
and the company started producing blending,
conveying and pumping systems before selling
to Middleby in 2010. Now they've gone full
circle and their current company, PRIMEdge, is
back in the blade business.
" Suppliers like us had a lot of opportunities
to evolve through the years, " said Ivo Cozzini,
CEO of PRIMEdge. " We had opportunities to
really think things through, to become more
automated, safer, and make better pieces of
equipment. The more you could evolve, the
more successful you could be. "
MOVING DOWN THE LINE
Early signs of automation can be traced back
to the late 1800s when meat packing facilities
" Many initial
advancements
were focused
on providing
faster machines
that could
handle more
capacity, but as
the technology
improved so did
innovation. "
