Continuous Rendering Processing
Valley Proteins utilizes proven continuous rendering processes throughout all of our plants. Our operations continually feed raw materials through a series of cookers, conveyors and presses that result in a continuous outflow of quality finished product. This process allows us to implement round-the-clock operations, maximizing energy efficiencies with minimal downtime.
