The January/February issue of AllAboutFeed is now available online. Amongst others things, this issue delves into the way that Geelen Counterflow in the Netherlands is making their feed dryers and coolers more sustainable and we give a short preview on what the programme for the first VIV Asia pet food conference will entail.
A better planet can start with designing a feed dryer that leaves a zero carbon footprint when in use. Geelen Counterflow in the Netherlands aims to only sell these new generation dryers in the future. And it makes sense, considering that aquafeed and dry pet food factories are true energy guzzlers, because drying is required to reduce the moisture content of the product after extrusion. The company has also built a new sustainable office. Read more about Geelen’s ambition on page 22.
In this issue of AllAboutFeed, we will also touch on the pet food seminar, that will be held for the first time at the upcoming VIV Asia. One part of the event will be dedicated to pet food ingredients and additives and is co-hosted by AllAboutFeed. The presentations, given by Anton Beynen, will reflect on the functional and natural trends that are reflecting the use of pet food ingredients. Mr Beynen works at Vobra Petfoods in the Netherlands and is also a regular writer for AllAboutFeed magazine. Read more on page 18 of this issue, what you can expect more.
