sustaincircleThe rendering industry has led the recycling industry as we know it.

For over 200 years we have protected our environment by converting animal by-products from the human food processing industry into edible meat fractions, feed ingredients for livestock, companion animals and fish as well as pharmaceutical ingredients, edible tallow, tallow for soap, cosmetics and biofuels.

Nothing is wasted, we even return the water which represents 60% of animal bodyweight back to the environment to sustain our ecology.

Stephen Woodgate

Stephen has been regarded for the last 25 years as the person in the rendering industry with the greatest scientific knowledge of BSE. He provided strong support over many years and assisted the ARA to provide solid scientific evidence to present to legislators on the correct steps Australia should take in regards to the ruminant feed ban and application of reasonable processing techniques.

He provided strong leadership to lift the profile of the World Renderers Organisation and worked tirelessly to have that body recognised by OIE and IFIF, a milestone that allows the industry to be involved in having a say on the future of our industry at the highest levels internationally. Stephen retired as President of WRO in 2015 having served his 2 year term.
