US - Rendered poultry by-products provide safe and sustainable value and are becoming increasingly important to today’s poultry industry.

This year’s Poultry Protein & Fat Seminar will provide technological updates and useful programmes for managers in all stages of the rendering process.

Sponsored by US Poultry & Egg Association and the Poultry Protein & Fat Council, the seminar will be held on 3-4 October 2013, at the Doubletree Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee.

"There is no doubt that rendered products offer useful, sustainable value for the poultry industry. There are also financial, regulatory and safety components that are imperative to the bottom line." said program committee chairman Bo Watson, Tyson Foods, Inc.
