Drivers who come to load, no longer have to clamber on top of their truck, tied to a lifeline. They can now carry out the necessary operations above the truck via a comfortable staircase on a safety board with a fence. Safety comes first, we want to avoid industrial accidents at all times. That too is sustainability.
The benefits are manifold: the field beans are grown locally, are a boon to bee populations thanks to their lush floral display, require very little pesticides, and are not genetically engineered. Field beans also belong to the leguminosae: the plant group that is the only group that extracts nitrogen from the air and not from the soil, so that no fertilizers are required. The plant is doing well, so it is easy to maintain.
We strive for a 100% local protein supply where the proteins come from the by-products of the local processing industry on the one hand and from the field beans on the other. We are also committed to promoting field beans to farms as a feed company.
We have built a new high-voltage cabin, so that it fully complies with the General Regulations on Labor Protection (ARAB) to safeguard the safety of employees and third parties in the workplaces. The necessary native shrubs, Cornus alba Sibirica, and a currant tree, Amelanchier lamarckii, have also been planted. Soon the dark green cabin will be nicely camouflaged among the fresh green. Everything in function of sustainability.
Congratulations to our customers who won 14 first prizes!
On Tuesday 21 August, we welcomed a delegation from the Chinese Ministry of Agriculture and the Chinese Customs, accompanied by the FAVV (the federal agency for the safety of the food chain in Belgium). They were interested in the way we produce feed and how we handle the strict regulations including the Feed Ban. Everyone was enthusiastic! Maybe we’ll export belgian cattle meat to China soon, who knows.
