Foodmate builds the 100th ULTiMATE Whole Leg Deboning Machine

NUMANSDORP, The Netherlands (Feb. 2021) — In January, Foodmate B.V. completed production of the 100th ULTiMATE whole leg deboning machine. The machine will be installed for a customer in Switzerland.

Since introducing the machine in 2018, Foodmate has installed the ULTiMATE in every continent around the world. Forty-two were installed in North America.

The ULTiMATE uses X-ray technology to sort the legs by length and weight. The legs are individually measured and the machine automatically adjusts its settings, for each leg for optimum processing.

With this technology, the ULTiMATE produces unmatched yield for boneless chicken leg meat and can process 6,000 legs per hour. Foodmate also uses this technique in other deboning machines such as the OPTiX Thigh Deboner.

Founded by industry experts in early 2006, the company quickly expanded its worldwide distribution into North and South America with the launch of Foodmate US in 2010. Foodmate Brasil was then launched in 2015, followed by Foodmate Poland in 2017 and Foodmate UK in 2019. Foodmate has become the committed and reliable partner of major poultry processing companies worldwide. In 2017, Inc. magazine has ranked Foodmate US, Inc.
