USSEC organized a “Full Fat One-on-One Workshop” as a follow-up to the second poultry roundtable for Maghreb’s feed industry. The workshop was held in May in Casablanca.
USSEC consultant and director of Texas A & M University’s Food Protein R&D Center Mian Riaz provided technical assistance to Alf Sahel, Morocco’s largest feed mill, and Copag, the country’s largest dairy cooperative.
The main objectives of the one-on-one workshop were to further assist with technical aspects of extrusion projects in both the poultry and dairy industries. USSEC’s assistance to key customers improves decision makers’ technical knowledge, leading to better utilization of U.S. soybeans.
The production of full fat soybeans is seen as a means of product diversification to increase U.S. Soy’s share in the Morocco market, which already imports U.S. soybeans, soy hulls, soybean oil and meal.
The animal production and poultry sectors have been the primary drivers of Morocco’s soybean market and would further benefit from full fat production.
The issues discussed not only showed high interest in the quality of U.S. Soy products, and but also the trust and confidence of the USSEC organization.
USSEC’s efforts will continue to sustain demand for U.S. Soy and develop the loyalty of leading customers.
