Agribusinesses to feed the world today and tomorrow
In the year 1800, the world was populated by about 1 billion people, in December 2019 the world population reached the figure of 7.6 billion inhabitants and there are projections that estimate a population of 9.7 billion people by the year 2050, according to the United Nations. This growth is obviously accompanied by a long list of needs that must be met to meet the demands of that population.
Food is a critical element because humanity has the challenge of producing the necessary amount of food for everyone and challenged with the financial resources to produce those foods. Agribusinesses have a prominent responsibility in that mission, with livestock and agricultural production playing a fundamental role in maintaining the pace of food production.
All companies that work in agribusiness are related in one way or another to food production and are committed to continue working so that world food production keeps pace. At Insta-Pro International, we feel part of that effort by working daily in research and development in two fundamental areas: new technologies and advances in nutrition. With a team of specialists in Engineering and Nutrition, we join these two areas of expertise to create products and applications that contribute to the protein production that is required now and in the future.
One of the challenges that we have is to contribute to the production of food in a healthy and environmentally friendly way. Our ExPress® technology allows us to produce high protein soy meal without the use of solvents for oil extraction. Among the various mechanical processing solutions, corn extrusion also stands out, which allows a greater gelatinization of starch, making it a superior ingredient for dairy cattle. The same happens with the stabilization of rice bran, which after being processed in our extruders, lengthens its life for months while retaining the same properties as when it was originally produced. We cannot stop talking about medium-shear extrusion solutions, with which it is possible to produce fish food, one of the fastest growing productive sector in the world.
These are just a few examples of how we participate and will continue to participate in the task of feeding the world. The availability of food for humanity is a vital issue and at Insta-Pro International we take it very seriously.
