An alliance that speaks with a collective voice that represents the best interests of its members in public, government and regulatory affairs, and provides services, programs and technical support to the North American rendering industry: both in the national and international markets.
The National Renderers Association (NRA), headquartered in Alexandria, Virginia, was formed in 1933 as the professional organization of the rendering industry.
At NRA, we represent our members’ interests to regulatory and other governmental agencies, promote the greater use of animal by-products and foster the opening and expansion of trade between foreign buyers and North American exporters.
In addition to maintaining a roster of all members, we publish a magazine, Render. Information about the magazine can be found in the Publications area of this website. Our members rely on our organization as a technical resource on animal health, animal nutrition, environmental and regulatory issues, while our annual convention provides a forum for renderers from around the world to share experiences and discuss common interests.
In addition to our US-based headquarters, we also maintain offices in Mexico and Hong Kong and have market consultants in Brussels, China, Thailand, Vietnam, and Chile.
