Food Extrusion Technology, Europe (Switzerland) – 10 to 12  February 2020 at University of Applied Sciences and Arts Western Switzerland (Hes-So), Institute of Life Technologies at Sion. This 3-day course covers the principles of extrusion, and the design of extrusion processes, as well as how the food formulation interacts with the extrusion process. All types of extruded foods are covered – including breakfast cereals, snacks, textured proteins, and pasta. Principles learned will be demonstrated using the extruder in the Hes-So pilot plant.

Design of Food extrusion Dies, Europe (Switzerland) – 13 & 14 February 2020 at University of Applied Sciences and Arts Western Switzerland (Hes-So), Institute of Life Technologies at Sion. This course covers the theory and practice of designing dies for extrusion systems. The program is relevant to the production of all types of extruded products – including expanded snacks and breakfast cereals, pastas and third generation snack pellets, pet foods and aquafeeds.

Food Drying Technology, Werribee, Vic –  11 & 12 March 2020 at CSIRO Food Innovation Centre, Werribee Vic. Drying is one of the most common operations in food and feed production. Yet it is often poorly understood and inefficient. This short course in Drying Technology, presented in cooperation with CSIRO, combines the practical perspective of experienced industry professionals with the in-depth technical knowledge of drying processes. This version of the program includes optional session specifically dealing with spray drying technology.

Engineering, Management & Operation of Extrusion Plants (South Africa) – 16 to 18 March 2020 at Potchefstroom, South Africa, in association with ExtruAfrica. This 3-day course focus on the practical aspects of engineering, management and operation of extrusion plants. It covers the principles of extrusion, the design of extrusion processes, the formulation of extruded products and how to properly maintain and operate an extrusion plant. Principles learned will be demonstrated using the CFAM pilot plant facility.

Aquafeed Extrusion Technology, South America (Chile) – 30 March to 1 April 2020 at Departamento de Ciencias Agropecuarias y Acuícolasy, Catholic University of Temuco, Chile. This 3-day course covers the principles of extrusion, and the design of extrusion processes, as well as how the aquafeed formulation interacts with the extrusion process.  Principles learned will be demonstrated using the extruder in the Laboratorio de Nutrición y Fisiología de Peces pilot plant. SIMULTANEOUS TRANSLATION INTO SPANISH. Webpage in Spanish Tecnología de Extrusión de Alimentos Acuícolas, Sudamérica (Chile)

Food & Feed Drying Technology, South America (Chile) – 1 & 2 April 2020 at Departamento de Ciencias Agropecuarias y Acuícolasy, Catholic University of Temuco, Chile. Drying is one of the most common operations in food and feed production. Yet it is often poorly understood and inefficient. This short course in Drying Technology combines the practical perspective of experienced industry professionals with the in-depth technical knowledge of drying processes.

Petfood Extrusion Technology, South America (Chile) – 6 to 8 April 2020 at Departamento de Ciencias Agropecuarias y Acuícolasy, Catholic University of Temuco, Chile. This 3-day course covers the principles of extrusion, and the design of extrusion processes, as well as how the petfood formulation interacts with the extrusion process.  Principles learned will be demonstrated using the extruder in the Laboratorio de Nutrición y Fisiología de Peces pilot plant. SIMULTANEOUS TRANSLATION INTO SPANISH. Webpage in Spanish Tecnología de Extrusión de Alimentos para Mascotas, Sudamérica (Chile)

Applied Food & Feed Extrusion, Thailand – 13 – 15 July 2020 at the Institute of Food Research & Product Development (IFRPD), Kasetsart Univerity, Bangkok. A unique approach to extrusion training – This “applied” extrusion course, which we have presented in Thailand since 2011, provides participants with an understanding of the theory of the extrusion process, combined with pilot plant exercises demonstrating how the principles are applied across different products and extruder types.

Aquafeed Extrusion Technology, Europe (Norway) – 28 to 30 September 2020 at Centre for Feed Technology (Fortek), AS, Norway. This 3-day course covers the principles of extrusion, and the design of extrusion processes, as well as how the aquafeed formulation interacts with the extrusion process.  Principles learned will be demonstrated using the extruder in the Centre for Feed Technology pilot plant.

Extrusion Scale-Up & Process Transfer, Europe (Norway) – 1 & 2 October 2020 at Centre for Feed Technology (Fortek), AS, Norway. This 2-day course covers techniques to scale-up an extrusion process – eg from pilot scale to production scale – or to transfer a process from one type of extruder to another. The extruders may be either the same or different makes of extruder.

Petfood Extrusion Technology, Europe (Norway) – 5 to 7 October 2020 at Centre for Feed Technology (Fortek), AS, Norway. This 3-day course covers the principles of extrusion, and the design of extrusion processes, as well as how the petfood formulation interacts with the extrusion process. Principles learned will be demonstrated using the extruder in the Centre for Feed Technology pilot plant.

 Food & Feed Extrusion Technology, Australia Dates to be announced –  August 2020 at CSIRO Werribee, Victoria. This 3-day course covers the principles of extrusion, the design of extrusion processes, and formulation issues affecting extrusion. It is relevant to all types of extruder (single and twin screw) and all extruded food and feed products. Principles learned will be demonstrated using the extruder in the CSIRO pilot plant.

Retort Supervisor’s Course (Thermal Processing) – Next dates and venue to be announced. This course provides an excellent background in the thermal processing of foods. It is designed to provide participants with the knowledge and skills to effectively supervise retort operations. Incorporating Can Seam Analysis for relevant participants.
