Transportation of meat

When meat is transported it is vital that this is done in a correct manner, to make sure no bacteria grow in the product. There are three types of meat products when chickens are slaughtered:
• fresh meat products
• processed meat products
• frozen meat products

The transportation of each of these products has different guidelines. Frozen meat products for example can be transported al over the world. Dependent on the distance of the transportation these products can be transported by truck, air, bike, motorcycle or by boat. Fresh meat products have to be in the supermarket within two days, and are thus not often transported over long distances. Trucks are therefore a more common transportation method.
