28/10/2015: International Rendering Symposium returning to 2016 IPPE

The US rendering industry collects and safely processes well over 50 billion pounds of animal by-products each year, converting these materials into fats and proteins used in animal feed, pet food and fuels. The rendering industry provides services for the safe collection of these materials and uses heat to dehydrate and separate the fat and solid materials. Rendering is a green, sustainable and vital part of the agricultural chain. 

The two-day International Rendering Symposium, sponsored by the National Renderers Association and held in conjunction with the International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE), will focus on the opportunities and challenges to the industry today.  

The symposium will begin with a virtual tour of a rendering plant followed by discussions of the usefulness and importance of rendered products in animal feed, pet food and aquaculture.

The implications for rendering of the Food Safety Modernisation Act, called the 'Most significant change in FDA regulation of feed since 1958,' will be discussed along with how rendering influences sustainability, quality, and safety of animal and pet food. Challenges and opportunities with the media will also be addressed, and a networking reception will be held from 5-7 pm, on Thursday evening, January 28, 2016, following the first day’s program. 

The fee for the symposium is US$200 for registered IPPE attendees. For the full agenda, click here. 

IPPE is expected to attract more than 28,000 attendees and is a collaboration of three trade shows—International Feed Expo, International Meat Expo and International Poultry Expo —representing the entire chain of protein production and processing. The event is sponsored by the American Feed Industry Association, North American Meat Institute and US Poultry & Egg Association. More information about IPPE, including registration details, lodging and education offerings, is available HERE.
