Training in Food and Feed Extrusion

FoodStream has been presenting a three day Food and Feed Extrusion Technology course annually in Australia since 1996. Since its inception, the course has gained an excellent reputation throughout the Australian food and animal feed industries and the popularity of the course has subsequently strengthened. As a testament to its growing popularity, the course has also been presented in Thailand and New Zealand over the past five years.

The course covers the principles of extrusion, the design of extrusion processes, and the formulation of extruded products. In addition to the Food and Feed Extrusion course, FoodStream is offering training in the Principles of Extruder Die Design. This is an advanced course and covers the theory and practice of designing dies for extrusion systems. Both programs are 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 aqua-feeds.

These courses are being offered at the Mantra Parramatta, Sydney, on:

  • Food and Feed Extrusion: 17 – 19 August 2009
  • Principles of Extruder Die Design: 20 – 21 August 2009
