The Rinse & Chill® technology and system is a well-researched and federally approved red-meat slaughter technology that more thoroughly removes unwanted blood, optimizes ideal pH levels and carcass temperature. The result is beef, bison and lamb products that are safer, cleaner, more consistently tender and better tasting. In taste tests with discriminating chefs, Rinse & Chill was shown to consistently enhance the palatability of the meat, from steaks to burger. Rinse & Chill also offers a significant point of difference at retail. The visual appeal of consistently bright color, coupled with improved tenderness and flavor, provides strong opportunities for branded, case-ready beef, as well as traditional, commodity-type meat products.
University studies have shown that Rinse & Chill® reduces bacterial contamination on carcass beef, as well as in vacuum-packaged and ground beef. Research conducted by University of Minnesota researchers during the four-year USDA Commercial Trial demonstrated that Rinse & Chill inhibits coliform bacteria, including E. coli. Most of our client establishments also report lowered bacterial counts on carcass surfaces during ongoing, standard testing procedures.
Today, our customers are mostly small and mid-sized meat processors. Many are purveyors of Natural meat products. Rinse & Chill® helps them deliver on their commitment to produce safe, wholesome and great-tasting meat.
