Processing Food Products for Human & Animal Consumption

The manufacturing and processing of food products for human and animal consumption is a huge industry that continues to grow. This industry includes beef, pork and poultry processing, dog and cat food, sugar refining, wet corn milling, coffee processing and the manufacturing of ice. KWS designs and manufactures equipment specially designed for the food industry. Our food grade conveyors are perfect for food products used for human consumption. Highly polished stainless steel construction with no pits or crevices is our standard for the industry. The equipment used for non-human consumption for the processing of beef, pork and poultry require very heavy-duty construction to handle the meat by-products.

Rendering Process

People around the world enjoy eating beef, poultry, pork, and mutton as part of a healthy diet. These meats are rich in vitamins and minerals as well as a good source of protein. The edible part of an animal is used for human consumption. Approximately 50-percent of an animal is considered inedible.

Annually, over 60 billion pounds of animal by-products are produced in the U.S. and Canada from farms, feedlots and slaughter facilities for cattle, hogs, sheep, chicken, and turkey. Instead of wasting the by-products and filling landfills, the materials are recycled annually into 20 billion pounds of fat, oil, and protein products. Rendering converts unutilized meat, fat, and bone into nutritious pet food and biofuels.

KWS builds high quality, engineered solutions to address the abrasive and corrosive environments found in the Rendering Industry.
