A responsible value chain
Soy is an important ingredient for Hamlet Protein and for our customers. We commit to sourcing responsible soy that does not contribute to deforestation or habitat conversion. We do this through a cooperation with our selected suppliers, industrywide organizations, Danish Agriculture & Food Council, National Oilseed Processors Association (NOPA), Round Table on Responsible Soy (RTRS) and The European Feed Manufacturers’ Federation (FEFAC).
We certify the GMO soy or non-GMO soy in our production either via Round Table of Responsible Soy (RTRS) or via the Proterra certification or similar for the non-GMO soy.
When cultivated and processed in a responsible manner, soy can be the sustainable protein source of choice for animals, consumers and our planet. All our soybean meal for our specialty soy ingredients for young animal feed is sourced from approved suppliers in Europe, North and South America.
Minimum water and energy consumption
Our founder developed our patented bioconversion process more than 30 years ago. It’s still the backbone of our business – producing easily digestible, highly palatable soy proteins for animal feed. Since the beginning, we’ve focused on:
- Minimum water and energy consumption
- Minimum carbon emissions and maximum utilization of raw materials
- Today excess heat from our production is redistributed as heating for more than 3,200 households
There is an increasing awareness on the need to protect our natural environment. That is our collective responsibility.
At the same time a growing world population puts pressure on our resources. As most of us do not want to compromise our way life, we need to think of innovative ways to protect our environment for future generations.
That is exactly what Hamlet Protein is doing in our renewable energy project. Through a unique cooperation with the district heating company we redirect excess heat from our production process to heat 3,200 local households.
