Centre for Feed Technology, Fôrtek, was established in 1997 with an overall goal to serve the feed industry by carrying out research, educational and developmental assignments in the fields of animal and feed nutrition. The Feed Technology Center‘s pilot plant is equipped with a variety of feed processing equipment designed to test new ingredients in feed formulas and their physical handling characteristics, evaluate variations of formulas to improve nutritional value and product quality. FôrTek’s production lines are available for the production of research feed for fish and other monogastric animals as well as for ruminants. Since its establishment, Fôrtek has gained valuable expertise on feed processing, physical quality of feed and how this affects nutritional value of feed throughout the research conducted at the facility. One of our strengths is the ability to combine feed technology with animal nutrition.
As an integral part of the Norwegian University of Life Science, Fôrtek offers to the feed industry the following services:
Manufacturing of feed for reseach purposes
Feed technology development
Our pilot plant can be used as a laboratory to study the feed production process
Education and short seminars and workshops
Confidentiality is 100 guaranteed
