Bakery Waste Processing Systems

Bakery wastes are co-products that are gathered from the recycling of the bakery industry, whether raw or previously baked.  Most bakery waste comes from breads that have been removed from the shelf after outliving its shelf life. Bakery waste can also include dough, flour, sugar, and any other common baking ingredients. Occasionally, bakery waste can include plastics and packaging material that gets thrown out with the expired bakery items.

Bakery waste usually ends up as animal feed for farm animals. Using bakery waste for animal feed helps reduce the amount of waste that ends up being disposed of as well as being a more environmentally friendly alternative. Almost 10 to 15 percent of all bakery waste is processed to become animals feed.

Bakery wastes are produced at every stage of production. They can consist of expired breads and bakery products that can no longer be shelved. Bakery wastes can also come from over-sized orders or inappropriate production size batches which result in unused dough. Sometimes the bakery waste comes from low quality products that weren’t made correctly and cannot be sold for consumption.

When bakery wastes are intended to be used for animal feed, we usually want to take into account the animal’s health and nutrition concerns. These often include moisture content and nutrient variability. It is imperative that bakery waste is processed correctly before being given to animals for consumption. It can be processed in a number of ways such as extrusion, dehydration, pelletization, or silage. These processes help ensure the preservation and storage of bakery waste after it’s transformed into animal feed.

Bakery waste can benefit from plastic removal, rotary drying, cooling, and milling. The ONIX Corporation has it in their ability to process numerous co-products to fit your company or industry needs.
