Event: IGP-KSU Pet Extrusion Processing: Technology & Commercialization with English to Portuguese Simultaneous Translation

The IGP-KSU Extrusion Processing: Technology and Commercialization course will cover various aspects of extrusion technology, equipment and product development (including snack foods, soy chunks, breakfast cereal, pet food and aquatic feed processing). Apart from learning about extrusion processing from experts in industry and academia, the course will focus on strategic business planning for extrusion-based companies with the help of faculty from the Department of Agricultural Economics at Kansas State University. There will be plenty of hands-on and practical oriented lab sessions in which different products will be developed and evaluated both instrumentally and by using a consumer panel. One day of the short course will be reserved for a visit to Sabetha, Kansas, which is home to major manufacturers of extruders and ancillary equipment.

A significant new feature of the KSU extrusion course is a hands-on session on the science and practice of sensory evaluation and consumer acceptance studies for new products.
