Efficient and effective solutions for end-to-end poultry processing in an ever-changing consumer demand-driven market

JBT, The Right Choice in Poultry Processing

In the beginning, all those nuggets, tenders, sausages, and mixed buckets were whole, live birds. Transforming them into culinary delights is a many-stepped endeavor, to say the least.

Fortunately, JBT equipment readily handles a variety of poultry:

  • Chickens
  • Turkeys
  • Ducks
  • Geese
  • Other commercially raised fowl and game birds

And, we have everything you need to prepare these feathered fowl for processing, such as:

  • Receiving shipments of live birds
  • Transferring birds from point to point
  • Stunning and slaughtering
  • Defeathering and offal screening
  • Paw removal and tracking
  • Evisceration
  • Trimming and washing
  • Deboning, cutting, and portioning
  • Brining and marinating
  • Coating
  • Cooking
  • Chilling and freezing
  • Packaging
  • Distribution

Better Poultry Processing Means Better All-Around Results

Did you know that our machinery excels at more than plucking, portioning, and panko-coating poultry? Your JBT poultry processing equipment can turn out massive operational gains. Users of our solutions – usually large-scale intermediary poultry processors – often report meaningful benefits like:

  • Labor savings. With greater labor efficiency, processors are able to reallocate workers to less dangerous, more fulfilling tasks.
  • Increased yields. The ability to get more meat off the bird translates to major bottom-line boosts. JBT machines are the only ones available that can match hand yield.
  • Improved food safety and worker security. Having reliable, automated, hygienic machines doing the work means accuracy, repeatability, and speed go up. It also reduces workplace hazards and risks for employees.
  • Simpler and minimal maintenance and repair. Designed for ease of use and ownership, you’ll appreciate straightforward operation, cleanability, hassle-free part repair or replacement, and consistent accuracy over time.
  • Smart resource usage. Efficient cleaning techniques and water reuse can cut a plant’s total water use in half – which is great for sustainability and cost control.
