Training Courses in Extrusion & Drying
Europe - Asia - South America - Australia
These short courses are presented by FoodStream, organised by Food Industry Engineering. FoodStream is an Australian company which, working with extrusion specialist Dennis Forte, has been presenting extrusion training in Australia and internationally for 20 years.
The Extrusion courses cover the principles of extrusion, the design of extrusion processes, and the formulation of the respective extruded products. Principles learned are demonstrated using the extruder in the pilot plant. The courses apply to both single and twin screw extrusion technology. The courses cover topics from the basics of extruders and their configuration, through what is happening chemically and physically inside the extruder barrel, to an understanding of extruder dies and extruder instability.
The 2-day Drying program covers the theory relating to drying processes, and its practical application, and is relevant to all types of food and feed products.

We are offering the following options to companies who provide equipment and services relevant to extrusion or drying.
(i) Sponsorship Opportunities
Day Sponsorship — The company is named as the sponsor for one of the training days by the following means:
Via the course website/s (with a link to their company website);
In copies of the course program/s sent out to all participants, and in the course notes;
A sign at breaks on the relevant day acknowledging the company's support (or the company could provide their own banner or sign for display on that day); and
A representative of the company may choose to address participants for 10 to 15 minutes on their nominated day.
Registration of this person for that day only is included in the sponsorship fee.
AUD1550/EUR1000/USD1250 at a single course
AUD1300/EUR850/USD1050 per course at two or more courses (booked at the same time).
Alternatively see “Dinner Sponsorship” below.
Dinner Sponsorship — Instead of the above payment to the course organisers, one per course of the “Day Sponsorships” may, at the option of the sponsor, be allocated to providing a course dinner to all course participants. The Dinner Sponsor provides a direct benefit to the participants. The company will still be named as the Day Sponsor with the benefits listed above.
Will depend on number of course attendees (typically 15 to 30) and the dinner/drinks to be provided.
(ii) Companies may also consider sponsoring attendance at a course by one or more of their clients’ staff, as a means of demonstrating their support and assisting the development of client’s technical expertise.
(iii) We are willing to make company brochures/literature available to attendees at no cost. We would of course appreciate suppliers of extrusion and related technologies making their contacts aware of relevant courses that we offer.
