Marinated meat is probably the first 'processed' food ever. Think of salt beef and hams, which have been on the menu for centuries. Today's processes for marinating meat on an industrial scale, however, are anything but old fashioned.

Marination offers far more than increased shelf life, although this still plays a role. It has evolved into a way of adding value to your products in terms of enhanced flavour, more appetizing colour, higher yield and an appealing bite. Marination can turn ordinary or cheap cuts of meat, poultry or fish into a succulent basis for a delicious meal as well cost-effectively prepare traditional products like high-quality hams on an industrial scale.
