Nor-Feed’s new plant in Chemillé, Anjou region, the hub of aromatic and medicinal plants in France, will strengthen its position for supplying botanicals to domestic and international markets.
The plant will quadruple Nor-Feed’s annual production which is estimated at 50 million tonnes of feed. It will implement a new patented extraction technology to exploit new botanical sources and make their active compounds bio-available without using solvent-dependent technologies to complete the extraction.
It runs on renewable energy side by side with electricity. The products have been eco-designed, from manufacturing down to their use, and will use co-products from the agricultural industry.
Nor-Feed aims to replace synthetic products in animal feeds. It is now engaged in a BCorp certification process to cement its commitment to a more sustainable way of doing business.
