Photo credit: Insta-ProThe American Soybean Association’s (ASA) World Initiative for Soy in Human Health (WISHH) recently attended the open-house of Insta-Pro, an extruder manufacturer and important partner to the WISHH program.Extruders, a type of soybean processing equipment that is well suited for human food and animal feed companies in emerging markets, are an important link in the soy value chain, allowing small and medium sized companies to add value to soybeans close to the source of demand.Insta-Pro partners with WISHH by hosting trade teams from Africa, Asia and Latin America, speaking at ASA/WISHH organized conferences and answering questions about extrusion. When a market increases its capacity for processing whole soybeans, the U.S. gets increased opportunity to compete for export market share.WISHH Asia Division Director Alan F. Poock, along with WISHH Committee Member/Iowa Soybean Association Board Secretary Tim Bardole, attended the open house of the new 63,000 square-foot facility in Grimes, Iowa in August. The new headquarters is double the size of the previous plant and contains a research and development area, assembly, warehouse and office space.“The partnership between Insta-Pro and ASA/WISHH has helped WISHH connect trade and development with potential soy customers in Africa, Asia and Latin America,” Bardole said.last_img
