About Us

Based in Iowa, Insta-Pro International develops industry-leading equipment for producing chemical-free livestock and poultry feed ingredients, vegetable oils and soy food products. We partner with university and independent researchers to optimize world-class nutritional value for achieving ultimate animal performance. Insta-Pro International is committed to leading the industry around the world in continuously improving quality, 
output and efficiency for our customers.

Our History

Soybean harvests in the heartland of the United States were abundant, but farmers lacked the ability to process on-farm crops into nutritional animal feed. Insta-Pro International® was founded to fill that gap, inventing and patenting the industry’s first high-shear dry extruder. Today, our extruders are utilized around the world to cook, sterilize, stabilize, texturize and expand oilseeds, grains and by-products.

After the success of our first extruder, additional products were developed to enhance and advance extrusion processes, as well as the addition of mechanical oil presses. An extruder-and-oil-press combination created our ExPress® System for chemical-free processing of oilseeds into high-quality meal and oil that can be used in many manufacturing industries.

Additionally, we added a medium-shear extruder to our line to process shaped products such as pet food and fish feed. Today, more than forty years later, Insta-Pro International® systems are hard at work on six continents: North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia.
