Soybeans keep flowing with the VEGAMIP microwave barrier switch

20. July 2020
soybean food grain manufacturing plant
Soybeans are big business in the United States. The U.S. Department of Agriculture estimates world soybean production in the 2019/2020 market year will be near 355 million metric tons, and the United States is forecast to produce about a third of it. Most of those soybeans are destined for a processing plant where they’re turned into soybean oil for food companies or soybean meal for animal feed processors. Read about VEGA's products that keep the soybeans flowing in this article.
