Milmeq custom designs systems to optimise processing for meat operations including beef, sheep, pork, goats, calves and deer.

Our red meat processing systems include complete abattoir design, incorporating all the systems and equipment to process beef and sheep product from hot to cold.

Having worked in the red meat industry since the 1950s, we pioneered many of the technologies which have shaped the operating environment today. For example, the inverted processing system, where carcasses are suspended by their fore legs during the pelt removal process, was pioneered by Milmeq in New Zealand in the 1980s; today it is recognised as setting the global standard for sheep and deer processing delivering superior food hygiene and operating efficiencies.

Our industry-leading plate freezers and chilling and freezing tunnels have been deployed in meat processing operations around the globe, delivering improvements in operational efficiencies as well as product quality.

The Milmeq Fully Automated Stock Transfer (MFAST) system is now revolutionising materials handling for meat processors, offering superior efficiency in operations, use of space and quality of product.

The following systems and equipment have been developed to enhance processing operations within the red meat industry.
