We Have a New Podcast: The Invisible Industry

NARA is excited to announce that we recently launched a new rendering podcast, The Invisible Industry: Everything You Didn’t Know (You Didn’t Know) About Rendering.

Our panel style podcast airs quarterly episodes that discuss and educate on agricultural rendering, the rendering industry, and the sustainability benefits of rendering.

Each episode features a new co-host from the rendering or related industry and unique guests who discuss a wide range of topics of interest to those in the rendering industry, as well as those looking to learn more about rendering and it’s many benefits.

In our first episode host Marcus Wintzer is joined by co-host, Ridley Bestwick of West Coast Reduction, and special guest, Michael Koewler of Sacramento Rendering Company for an introduction to agricultural rendering, the history of the rendering industry, and why rendering is so sustainable.

In future episodes we will explore topics such as: Rendering’s Role in Biofuels and Renewable Diesel, Community Outreach & How Renderers Support their Communities, Safety in Rendering, How Rendering Supports the 3 Pillars of Sustainability, Where do Rendered Products Go? and Debunking Rendering Myths: Fact vs. Fiction.


The Invisible Industry podcast is available on Spotify and Amazon Music, with a video version also available on YouTube.
