Towards greater sustainability in food and feed production
Nijsen/ Granico is a family-owned company, based in Veulen, near Venray in the south of the Netherlands. With a dedicated team of more than 100 colleagues, we work towards creating greater sustainability in food production. We are the only compound feed producer in the Netherlands to produce unique Food-For-Feed® raw materials using foodstuffs that are otherwise considered as waste. Our animal feeds really make the difference in profitability for farmers and enhanced sustainability.
30 years of experience
At Nijsen/ Granico, we now have almost 30 years of experience in this segment and can produce (pig) feed that comprises up to 100% foodstuff waste streams, processed into circular Food-For-Feed® raw materials.
> 100,000 tons/year repurposed resources
Every year more than 100,000 tons of foodstuffs are repurposed and processed into high-grade, appetising feed for pigs or Kipster chickens.
Together with our customers, this forms our contribution to circular agriculture and greater sustainability in the pig and poultry production sectors. For sustainably produced, delicious eggs and meat.
Pig producers can boost their profits thanks to the specific properties of the Food-For-Feed® raw materials such as a good feed conversion rate and balanced composition.
Pig producers can:
- Feed more efficiently;
- Reduce phosphate emissions;
- Lower their costs for manure disposal;
- Achieve a higher growth rate per pigs;
- Supply more pigs;
- Produce tastier and better quality meat;
- Supply feed that is more sustainable and therefore reduce the CO2 footprint of their farms.
