Quality and continuity,
that is the core for us.
We operate as wholesalers and primarily serve the Dutch, Belgian and German compound feed industry. Our products meet the most stringent quality standards and can be supplied all year round, either directly from factories or from the perfectly conditioned transhipment warehouses in the Netherlands and abroad. The following is a list of the products that we bring to market.
Beet pulp is a by-product created during the manufacture of sugar from sugar beets. Beet pulp is available all year round and is a reliable source of energy as a raw material for compound feed or fed directly. Our beet pulp is sourced in Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, France and the Czech Republic, etc. and is GMP+ FSA certified.
Soya bean hulls
Soya bean hulls are a by-product of the production of oil and protein from the soya bean. The soya bean hull, the skin of the soya bean, is low in protein and fats, but high in fibre. The fibre is easily digestible and has good absorbent properties. Soya bean hulls are used as a raw material for cattle feed and are available in both pellet and non-pellet form.
Maize pellets are a by-product of the production of maize flakes using a dry process, consisting of maize bran, germ and parts of the farinaceous cobs. It is sometimes compared to cornmeal, but there are a number of important differences between the composition of the two products. Maize pellets have a lower starch content and contain more crude fibre, protein and fats. Maize pellets are available all year round and in addition to being an excellent raw material for compound feed, they are also suitable as a direct feed.
Wheat bran is a by-product of grinding wheat into flour. The fibrous husk, the seed cover of a grain of wheat, is removed by sieving/screening after grinding and added to part of the starch to form wheat bran. This an important and relatively new product for us and is extremely suitable for use in pig and cattle feed. For this product we collaborate with suppliers from the Netherlands and Germany.
For potato pulp, we act as Avebe’s logistical partner. We carry out the planning for all Avebe’s factories, organise transport to the livestock farmers and are jointly responsible for managing their agents and dealers. Potato pulp’s high energy and starch content makes it ideal as a substitute concentrated feed for cattle.
Potato pulp has a high nutritional value, raises the protein content of milk and is available all year round.
Protamylasse is one of the by-products occurring during the production of potato starch. It is concentrated potato processing water from which part of the protein has been removed. Protamylasse is mostly used to aid production of pellets in feed for ruminants, it is available all year round and, kept under the correct conditions, keeps well and is easy to process.
Molasses is a viscous by-product of the production of sugar from sugar beets, after the pulp has been removed and the sugar has been refined. It contains approx. 50% sugars, providing ‘fast’ energy.
Vinasse is the co-product remaining after production of alcohol, for instance during fermentation, particularly of molasses. Compared to molasses, vinasse contains more rumen degradable protein (RDP) and has a relatively high potassium content.
