SojaProtein opens non-GMO soy facility to produce piglet feed
SojaProtein, a Serbian soya concentrate specialist, has officially opened its new state-of-the-art production facility in Bečej, Serbia. Specialising in non-GMO soy protein concentrates, the company will produce feed for piglets, among other animal feeds.
The plant, with production capacity for 70,000 Megatonnes, will specialise in non-GMO soy protein concentrates for the EU market. A major part will be available for animal feed applications, the rest for the pharmaceutical, infant and meat processing industries.
The plant will manufacture specialised soy concentrates (SPC) for the animal feed industry will also be distributed by Barentz Agri Nutrition Division. The SojaProtein soy concentrates are low in ANFs and soluble carbohydrates yet rich in lysine with excellent digestibility. This makes them particularly suitable for inclusion in young animal feeds such as calf milk replacers, piglet feeds and in aqua culture.
Pieter van den Berg, managing director Barentz Agri Nutrition Division, said, "We will put a strong focus on direct delivery to customers via our network of pan-European sales and logistical centres. The non-GMO origin and the low iron content makes this SPC unique and it will bring great solutions to our customers."
SojaProtein is a member of the Victoria Group which has invested 30 million Euro in the plant as part of its strategy to maintain its leading position in the sector and supply the anticipated growth in the market. The plant is audited by SGS and GMP+ certified.
Mr. Zoran Mitrović, CEO of the Victoria Group, is confident about the possibilities for soy products in animal nutrition. “We are extremely proud that we can work together with Barentz Agri Nutrition. Barentz’ 60 years experience in the animal nutrition market will help us successfully launch our SPC and become a long term strategic partner in the feed industry.”
