EFPRA is Europe’s leading authority on the use, value and bio-security of edible animal fats and meat industry by-products. Its members work closely with regulators, livestock producers, meat processors and retailers across the EU to make best use of the 18 million metric tonnes of animal by-products produced every year. The industry EFPRA represents recovers edible animal fats, valuable proteins and renewable energy at 450 sites, producing quality products for use in human food production, animal feeds, petfood and for the oleochemical, pharmaceutical, energy and construction industries.
EFPRA members produce premium animal fats for use in biscuits and bread making, for frying and in the production of convenience foods and confectionery.
EFPRA’s work includes research and development to continually improve bio-security and reduce the environmental impact of human food production.
EFPRA brings together by-product processing organisations from European member states and works closely with food chain partners worldwide. Its council includes representatives from all member associations who, in turn, represent the interests of more than 250 commercial businesses.
At the Congress which will be held at the Radisson Blu Resort & Spa Dubrovnik Sun Gardens will host a number of distinguished speakers who will talk about this subject.
