Giving Food Waste a Second Life
Trotec transforms all plant-based food waste with at least 40% total solids content into high-grade basic ingredients for animal feed (for pigs, cattle and chickens). Total recycling is Trotec's goal, which means that even food packaging gets a second life.
We process two kinds of food waste – manufacturing by-products and unsaleable/unsold products:
- broken biscuits
- misshapen pralines
- dough off-cuts
- incorrectly packaged products
- rejects at batch start-up/shutdown
- rejects caused by production-line stoppages/failures
Why make it any more complicated than necessary? After all, Trotec stands for Total Recycling, Optimization, Transparency, Ecology en Creativity.Trotec takes care of every aspect of the recycling process – both technical and administrative.
Trotec was founded in 1968 based on a simple premise. How can we help food companies solve their waste/by-product problems? Our basic philosophy was that by-products weren't waste, but a valuable commodity. At the time, this made Trotec a true pioneer. We developed 100% proprietary technologies for processing by-products safely and efficiently. We have now grown to become the market leader in our sector.
