The World Renderers Organization (WRO) was founded in 1999 to represent the international rendering community. Rendering, known to be the world’s original recycling business, has been prominent in several civilisations for centuries. Processors from the USA, Canada, UK, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand established the WRO that now represents more than 20 countries. New country members are always welcome to join the organisation.
Following the BSE crisis in Europe in the1990’s, it became essential that renderers engage international regulators with one voice. WRO has become that voice in dialogue with OIE, WHO, FAO, and Codex Alimentarius.
