DG Foods is capable of processing over one million front halves per week using hand deboning cone lines. Between both facilities, we can meet most production requests. Whether small, medium, or jumbo front halves, we have the ability to process whole or cut wings, clipped or unclipped tenderloins, trimmed or untrimmed breast fillets, and butterflies.
Hand thigh deboning is available at our Bastrop facility. Using hand held Whizard knives, DG Foods can process up to 650,000 thighs per week on individual cutting tables.
DG Foods has the current capacity to hand-portion more than 1,500,000 pounds, with the ability to portion small, medium, and jumbo breast and tenderloins. Hand portioning allows for higher primary and secondary yields as well as minimizing trim yields. Sliced meat is available for breast hand portioning to allow for consistent thickness requirements. Tender hand portioning cuts include angle cut, center split, Y cut, and bevel cut.
Slicing of boneless breast is available at our Bastrop facility. We utilize a Grasselli KSL horizontal multi-blade slicer capable of processing 5,000 pounds per hour.
Marination is available at our Bastrop facility.
Our x-ray inspection and hand inspection services identify the presence of foreign materials including bones, cartilage or other identifiable materials.
Repackaging services are available at both DG Foods facilities. We re-package fresh parts into bulk or bagged products. Packaging includes bulk packing from 40-, 50-, 70- or 2000-pound packages with the ability to CVP 40-pound bulk packages or 4/10 and 8/5 packages.
By offering our clients the ability to purchase frames from our front deboning service, they have the option to increase the value of their product compared to other rendering alternatives.
