Food preservation is an industry that is used by virtually everyone – producers and consumers alike. Meat and fish producers need to preserve most of what they produce. The minimum requirement is that food must be preserved long enough to get the produce to market. Beyond that though, there is an opportunity for these primary producers to value-add to the products they produce, and in doing so preserved meat and fish products can generate more income per kilogram, and can be stored and sold over a much longer period of time than fresh food due to its extended shelf life.
