24/08/2015: Practical Course: 'Basic processes in compound feed production.' Registration deadline this Friday

The feed sector plays a key role within the animal sectors, for both animal husbandry and pets. Healthy, safe and high quality feed is essential for healthy animals and the production of tasty and safe animal products such as milk, eggs and meat. The quality of feed is partly safeguarded by good knowledge concerning the whole production process: what is the effect of resource treatments on the quality of feed?

Process technology is the central topic during this 2-day training course, brought to you by the Feed Design Lab with IFF.
The course is for nutritionists, advisors, account managers, policymakers and other interested personnel working in the feed industry.  
Participants will gain insight into the production process of feed manufacturers. Furthermore, attention will be paid to the use of various resources, quality control, trends and new developments in the feed sector.
