Haarslev announced today that it is partnering with Tessenderlo Group to combine their experience in the field of the production of highly digestible feather meals and blood meals via gentle drying technologies, promoted under the brands IDX for flash drying and VDX for vacuum drying.

Haarslev will now offer Tessenderlo Group’s patented know-how to its customers buying specific gentle drying equipment. This will give renderers worldwide access to these patented technologies to produce and market products of higher added value for applications in pet food, aquafeed, and animal feed delivering higher digestibility levels.
