Natural Casings Associations

Almol is a member of both ANSCA (Australian Natural Sausage Casing Association) and INSCA (International Natural Sausage Casing Association). INSCA alone has has spent almost 2 million dollars on R&D in recent years. Innovations have made natural casings more consistent, stricter in size, better in quality, easier to use, more efficient and completely safe verified by globally approved HACCP programs.

Recent advances in technology have all but eliminated the difficulties and significantly increased the profitability of producing natural casing sausages. The challenge then is to make this knowledge more freely available to decision makers of meat processing enterprises.

Almol Support & Expertise

With 40 years of experience in natural casings and an active role in INSCA/ANSCA, Almol Australasia Casings also provide their expertise in implementing efficient natural sausage casing processing lines.

Before studying the numerous kinds of natural casings, it's important to understand that casings can vary in quality. It is the sausage manufacturer's purpose that determines the requirements of the casing.

These variables include:
  1. Equipment used for filling
  2. Type(s) of sausage being manufactured
  3. Coarseness of the fill
While Almol remains focused on the production of quality natural sausage casings, we regularly provide in depth support to our clients to ensure they are able to fully realise the benefits of our natural sausage casings on their processing lines. At Almol, this support and expertise is part of our ongoing commitment to quality service for all our clients.
