Now existing and new customers can achieve an even faster return on investment with the recently developed Kneecap Separator (KCS) for the Foodmate OPTI Thigh Deboner. Foodmate developed the KCS add-on module in order to provide a solution to address staffing issues with the trimming of cartilage that stays on the meat after deboning. Due to an increasingly tight labor market, it is becoming more and more difficult to staff the trim tables and control the performance of each individual trimmer.
