Fodder NZ manufactures temperature and humidity controlled grain sprouting rooms that produce feed for livestock.

All up, each of these rooms are about the size of a 20’ shipping container.

The interior of the room comprises an aluminium subframe supporting water, lights and the trays that the grain is sprouted in. The exterior box is constructed off-site, but the subframe, associated wiring and support installation is installed in our Shannon factory.
