The “Effect of Extrusion” answers the question whether we need to extrude a specific product or not. Processors may have their own reasons for using an extruder as part of a process. However, ultimately we can summarise our reasons for extrusion as follows:
- to produce Meat, Milk and Eggs at a cost as low as possible while optimising animal performance and health.
- to utilise by-products from other processes to produce a range of feed and industrial products, thereby minimising our effect on the environment while maximising cash inflow into our business.
