Artisan butchers working with customers on the best cuts

The Australian red meat industry is a valuable part of Australia’s economy and social fabric. The red meat industry generates $A15 billion for the Australian economy and employs over 300,000 people.

Equally successful, New Zealand’s beef and lamb exports topped NZ$6.7m in 2017-18, driven by good farm-gate and strong per tonne pricing, plus the dry conditions of December 2017.

For those in the meat processor trade, the ability to quickly and efficiently handle and distribute the protein is vital to the success of the business – whether that be within the abattoir or in the butcher shop door.

Khabin, partnered with Munkfors, has led the development of bandsaw blades for the food industry – so butchers can sharpen their performance to gain a more competitive edge.
