CFAM Description

CFAM is manufacturer of extruders and related equipment for processing of ready-to-eat foods, pet foods, aquaculture feeds and ready-to-eat foods.  CFAM provides turnkey solution for feed processing plants - design, manufacturing, setup, commissioning, training of operators as well as backup maintenance and support.  CFAM’s equipment is designed and built in Africa for Africa.

Our Extrusion Research and Development Centre focus on the development of affordable, nutritious food and feed products that can be produced from locally produced agricultural products.  The Centre is fully equipped to develop new applications of extrusion and also to make sample products for consumer testing.

CFAM’s latest innovation is our “Plant-in-a-box” solution.  This is a new concept extrusion processing plant CFAM developed specifically for Africa.  The plant consists of plug and play interconnecting modular units that can be transported by road and/or ship to any location in Africa.   The plant is first built, commissioned and tested ex-works before it is shipped to final location.  This enables quick installation and commissioning of complete processing plants at any remote location.
