Halal Certified Casing
DCW cleans and selects high quality Halal Certified sheep and lamb casings. DCW provides full documentation to customers that purchase these products so their end users can feel confident that the merchandise has been certified.
The majority of the material DCW procures is packed and shipped to our selection facility cleaned and salted. The cleanliness and quality of the casings produced by our selection plants surpasses our competition as a result of our proprietary cleaning processes. Not only will you receive the cleanest most wholesome casing available, we also insure the casings do not get damaged during the process. The result is a casing that performs better on your stuffing equipment and in your smokehouse.
Tubing is a process in which each finished piece of casing is reeled onto a plastic tube. Tubed casings allow a sausage manufacture to quickly place the casing on the stuffing horn without having to pre-tube the product or ravel on by hand. Tubed casings make longer strand sheep casings easier to manage in the factory and help our customers avoid tangling while soaking or stuffing. Tubing is a process used by the majority of medium to large end users to create more speed and efficiency on the stuffing line.
Each hank of casings has a brine solution run through them and they are place in a seal plastic bag floating in brine solution. Preflushed casings allow the customer to begin stuffing product with little to no soaking time avoiding pre preparation procedures
These product are stripped out, salted, and placed three hanks in each net. For customers that prefer to do their own soft tubing inside of their facility net packed product is the most efficient and cost effective way to prepare the product for stuffing.
