Therefore, the government is taking steps to implement stringent measures in the context of the control of enterprises, their working processes, the handling of illiquid products and goods, storage and
disposal of food. Food products such as meat, fish, sausages and semi-finished products are characterized by a relatively short shelf life.

The recycling of meat waste begins with its inspection and sorting. If the products are in the worst condition, they are incinerated. The ash is taken to a landfill with solid waste. Expired meat products that have not lost their liquidity are carefully shredded, ground to a powdery state and used as supplementary animal feed. For responsible entrepreneurs, who check on time how well the products are stored, the utilization of meat into fodder is the best and economically profitable option. At the same time, the prices for such services are quite affordable.
