A responsible value chain
As the world population continues to grow, the demand for safe feed and food increases. At the same time, we need to make responsible use of scarce resources, to protect our planet. Investing in new technologies and research, Hamlet Protein supports producers around the world to increase their productivity in a sustainable manner.
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 can certify the GMO soy or non-GMO soy in our production either via Round Table of Responsible Soy (RTRS) or via the Proterra certification for the non-GMO soy. Though a cooperation with industrywide organizations, suppliers, governments, Round Table on Responsible Soy (RTRS), The European Feed Manufacturers’ Federation (FEFAC) and National Oilseed Processors Association (NOPA) we continuously are focusing on increasing the transparency and sustainability of our key ingredient.
Reducing our carbon footprint forms part of Hamlet Protein’s sustainability program. We constantly invest in technology that allows us to reduce the use of energy. At the same time, we are redirecting waste energy from our Horsens plant to provide heating for more than 3,200 households in the region.
A low carbon footprint – right from the start
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
