Best Procurement Practices

The global gelatin industry report by Procurement Resource gives an in-depth analysis of the best buying practices followed by major gelatin producing and consuming regions across the globe, such as engagement models, contract terms, and buyer and supplier negotiation levers, among others.

Category Management Studies

Gelatin is produced from decomposed animal hides, boiled, and crushed bones, and the conjunctive tissues of cattle and pigs. The animal parts are inspected for quality while decayed parts are removed when they arrive at the food processing factories. The animal hides are put into containers of acid that break the cow hair, skin, and cartilage after the hides are ripened. The raw material used in this process is acids and alkalines like caustic lime or sodium carbonate are utilised. The production of gelatin involves various critical stages namely pre-treatment, hydrolysis, withdrawal of gelatin from hydrolysis mixture, refining and recovering treatments that include filtration, clarification, evapouration, sterilisation, drying, rutting, grinding, and sifting to detach the water from the gelatin solution, to combine the gelatin extracted and to obtain dried, blended and ground final product.

The gelatin producers in Europe use raw materials only from healthy cattle, pigs, and fish. Additionally, Gelatin Manufacturers of Europe (GME) manufacture according to the ISO and the other high-degree food safety and Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) guidelines. Hence, Europe has one of the finely constructed and monitored gelatin industries. Gelatin manufacturers in Europe use complex and highly technical industrial equipment in their plants.
