What are chicken loops?
Decades ago, supermarkets and poultry processors used to hand tie their products. High costs and a high chance of cross-contamination were the main issues in this process. So, chicken loops were introduced to the poultry industry. The primary use for these elastic loops was to increase efficiency, save time and promote food safety. Nowadays these loops are being used for other purposes as well, for example meat tying.
The intended use of chicken loops is binding of the poultry legs which facilitates the roasting process. They consist of two or three food grade rubber threads and are covered with cotton or polyester yarns. They are perfect for rotisserie chicken and they can as well be used for tying bacon wrapped filets and many other food preparations. The advantage of the binding rings is that it improves the handling of the product (carcasses can no longer fall open), and therefore avoids damage to the meat.
Our highly automated production process provides chicken loops of high quality and is in accordance with all food safety standards. The loops are easy to use and available in a wide range of different sizes, types and colors to meet your production needs.
In France they use loops for tying “paupiettes de veau” or stuffed veal bundles. It preserves the shape of the meat during the cooking process.
