Meet Haarslev

For over a century, we’ve been helping the world turn organic waste into valuable proteins and other products we all depend on.


As the global population continues to rise and the world’s supply of vital proteins, minerals, fuel and other essentials are increasingly constrained, it has become vital to utilize resources more efficiently.

Although not widely known or understood, “rendering” and related processes play a central role in squeezing nutritional and other value out of the resources the world has at hand.

The principle is simple: Instead of simply throwing out leftovers from meat, poultry and fish production, break this waste down into its constituent parts – including proteins, minerals, ingredients and fuels we can use.

Haarslev helps make this all happen, by providing the specialist equipment and knowhow it takes to keep rendering a safe, healthy and financially viable activity. Which is why Haarslev is the world’s No. 1 provider of rendering and related processing solutions.
