For almost 70 years, Valley Proteins, Inc. has set the standard in advanced continuous rendering technology. With our state-of-the-art processing facilities, strict quality control policies and innovative staff of research technologists, Valley Proteins is always on the leading edge in the conversion of animal processing and supermarket waste streams into value-added feed ingredients and clean energy alternatives. We continually strive to create innovative solutions that enhance our processes, providing our customers with superior products at competitive prices.
Since our inception, Valley Proteins has continually invested in the improvement of our operations. From our facilities, to our trucking fleet, we have invested millions in capital expenditures resulting in improved production methods, process control, energy consumption, quality control, and ultimately, better products. Typically, we allocate at least 5% of our sales annually for the improvement of our operations.
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 resulting in a continuous outflow of quality finished product. This process allows us to implement round-the-clock operations, maximizing energy efficiencies with minimal downtime.
Our third-party certifications ensure compliance with all Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) rules. All Valley Proteins locations carry American Protein Producers Industry (APPI) and/or American Feed Industry Association (AFIA) Safe Feed/Safe Food™ designations.
