The feed industry has to meet manifold requirements in its function as reliable partner in the chain for the production of foods of animal origin.
In view of the dynamic developments of the market, there are considerable efforts necessary for safeguarding the competitiveness which can be shaped more successful, the better the operator and manager of a feed plant can fall back on know-how.
For this reason, the Research Institute of Feed Technology of IFF will carry out an international course on “Fundamentals and new developments in feed-compounding technology” in English language from 7 to 11 June 2010 at Braunschweig-Thune, Germany.
On the basis of fundamentals and practical experiences, the aim of this course is the updating, extension and refreshment of required knowledge for an economic and safe compound-feed production.
Practical courses at the pilot plant station of the research institute will be included.
Who should go?
This course is intended both for junior staff and for practitioners as well as technical management staff from all sectors of the feed industry.
It is recommended to employees of the supplying industry as it imparts in a concentrated form the know-how on the feed production as well as for safeguarding product safety and quality which is indispensable for a successful cooperation.
