The New Year is a great time to set new goals for your business, expand your customer base, and assess how you can be even more productive in 2020. And of course, one of the simplest ways to increase productivity in a butcher shop is to make sure you have all of the equipment you need to get the job done quickly and efficiently!
A good place to start is to make sure you have the right time saving equipment primed and ready for action.
The tried and true overwrapper is the perfect piece of butchers machinery to increase your productivity. You can quickly, professionally wrap any of your meat products including mince, cubed, and pre-marinated items. In a matter of seconds you can have professionally sealed meat that’s ready for your display fridge — or for a hungry customer!
A quality overwrapper can save you time fiddling with cling film, and will give you a professional seal every single time. Plus, overwrappers typically cost a few hundred pounds it’s a relatively small investment compared to other heavy duty machinery.
Bandsaws can be a fantastic addition to your shop if you’ll be butchering large sections of meat. If you’re new or have been in the industry a while you know all too well the challenge large joints can sometimes present to your productivity and workflow.
You may want to consider getting a meat bandsaw if you're regularly having to cut large joints of beef, or even processing whole animals. Meat bandsaws will cut pretty much anything and should be used for rough cuts — leaving the more delicate ones to be cut by hand. Overall, a bandsaw can save you a lot of time and hassle by cutting large sections of meat down to size in a few minutes. We stock bandsaws in several brands and at a range of price points to meet your requirements.
