Meat is one of the most essential nutritious food item needed for human consumption from which high quality proteins, minerals and essential vitamins are derived. However, certain categories of consumers such as the children, elderly and sick people might not be able to provide the requisite biting force for tough meat tissues. Thus they would only be able to consume meat in their grinded form. In order to address this problem, it becomes necessary to have a meat grinding machine; in order to ensure good and easy digestion of the meat in their system. This paper presents the design of an efficient single meat grinding machine with both manual and motorized mode of operation, which can be used at any where (urban and rural area) and at any time (during electric power outage). This design provides the kinematic arrangement of forces, materials selection and proportion of parts to ensure maximum strength and functionality of the machine. To avoid failure of the machine, the working stress (21MN/m2) of the machine is kept within the value of its ultimate stress (30MN/m2).
